+hO 



ou've probably alreacty noliced, but 
the Amiga games scene is looking 
bleak to say (tie least. Releases are 
becoming few and far between, and it's a 
worrying trend for both Amiga owners and 
Esoom. But wtiat is far more alarming is itie 
drop in qualify of these games. And the orig- 
in aiiiy lis as it developers seem to think 
Amiga owners are just so desperate for 
games that they will gratefully lap up any old 
rubbish that is chucked in their direction. 
GfBphies seem to have laken a step back in 
terms of quality, and il's little wonder that the 
average Amiga gamesplayer is left looking 
envious at some of the high-tech realism 
offered by the PC. Tittes like Ruffian, Akira 
and Angst all look like games Irom the early 
'BOs and do noHiing but harm ihe Image of 
the Amiga- 
Graphics aren't the only factor on trial 
here either - originality seems to have beeo 
swept to one side as well. Fooltoali manage- 
menl games are churned out by the dozen, 
and okay, the good ones do sell well, but 
they really are becoming a very tested, unin- 
spired old formula Itial has left ttie industry 
kKAing weary. Other genres need serious 
revamping too, Dull platfomfiers. dull racing 
games and dull beat-'em-ups are all cale- 
gories covered countless limes, many with 
little or no imagination. 

Looking at the back catalogue of Amiga 
games, you realise jtist tiow bad things have 
got. A few years, even months ago, ttie 
Amiga owner could ctioose (rom Triple A 
products like Rashtaack, Cannon Fodder or 
Theme Park. But now it's a difterenl story 
and bar maybe four or five, ttiere aien't too 
many titles on ihe release schedule that will 
exdte your average gamesplayer. 

Il's not just a problem isolated to the 
Amiga though. PC games are falling into the 
dangerous trap of formulaic 'interactive 
movies' and while their graptiics do astound, 
the play ability has all the depth of a shallow 
puddle. So, things aren'i all that nosy there 
either. But what explanation can there be for 
all this? Surely developers cant have just 
mn out Of ideas? If so why - there's a great 
big world out there. Gel up from your 
computers, go and eKplore, be inspired. 

Anyway, ifs not the PC we should be con- 
cerned with here. Ifs the slate of the Amiga 
market. Developers we could once rely on 



IhB Bl team

Tina ffscHett takes a -n 

Igoh at the state of the — 

games market and asks. -

for original games have taken their talents 
elsewhere. Names such as LucasArts, 
Delphine and Bullfrog are sadly iaclting from 
our shelves. Others like Sensible Software 
are soon to follow, and Escom are going to 
have to take responsibility for making sure 
there are good, quality developers out there 
worthing on original titles that ttie Amiga 
owner deserves. 

And lake the Doom clone phenomervon, 
for example. This is a good! Illustration of the 
nervous band wag on -lumping that is also 
going on in the industry at the moment. It's 
as though the software companies don't 
have the guts to come up with their own 
products - they see a trend and follow it. 
What they should be trying, to do is thinking 
of something of their own, rather than this 
attitude of trying to outdo each other. Why 
should Amiga owners want to go and buy a 
game Ihal is trying to tie a copy of one on the 
PC anyway. We don't want second rate PC 




titles, we want our own. original, quality 
games and we need our own software thai 
will make the PC owner jealous of us for a 
Chang©. 

So ril leave you with these final tttoughls. 
One is for Escom. who have to ensure 1hera 
are going lo be good, original developers 
out there that will produce high quality pntxl- 
uds. The other is for Ihe software compB- 
nies themselves who must avoid this trend 
following' approach and earn back some 
respeci. Graphics need to feel like iheyi 
belong in the nest decade not Itie las!, and 
the balance between presenlatiofi and 
playability must also be considered (remem- 
ber ftisB of the Robots and Microcosm'?) 

And the tast and most important IhougM I 
1$ for you, the Amiga owners- Doni't givt 
them Ihe opporlunity, Don'l buy the sub-l 
standard products, waiit until there are so™ j 
worthwhile titles there that really tio dftservB 
youT time and money. ^g

Hmiga bundle reuealed 



Last minute news from Amiga Technol- 
ogies revealed thai the software to be 
bundled with the At 200 and 4000T will include 
Ihe newest versions ot some of th# most 
acclaimed productivily packages available for 
the Amiga. 

As reported in our press conference feature in 
this issue, there will be a standard A1200 pack- 
age costing C399 and a A1200 plus inard drive 
packst^ costing E499, Up to now. however, tine 
conlents of the software pack thai will be bundl&ct 
with Itie Amigas has been a mystery. 

The stanttard pacit wiii come with three applica- 
tions from Digita; Wordworth 4SE, a brand new 
versiiOn ot tlie award-winning wordprocessor, 
Datastore v. 1.1. ( a database) and Organiser 
v1 .1 , their recently released computerised HlofaK 

It will aiso include Turbocaic v3.5, an as yet 
unreieased version of Sciiizlruhe's spreadsheet 
program. On the artistic side, an updated version 
of Ctoanto's iiigfily regarded Personal Paint soft- 
ware - version 6.4 - will be accompanied by 
another Amiga showcase program, Photogenics 
1.1 from Almalfiera. Despite the productivity focus 



{Imiga5 in Hmerica 

while Amiga Technologies' plans for 
the UK are gradually becoming 
clearer, the strategy for the American 
marlKBl remains less certain- It has 
been announced, however, that Ed 
Goff. former US lawyer for 
Commodore, will be leading the 
company'sUSdivision. 

it was made clear at the Heathrow 
press confercrice that Amiga 
Technologies considers the 4000T to 
have the atrongesl market tn the US. 
although a smaller allocation of 1200s 
has been made. 

The general manager of Amiga 
Technologies. Petro Tyschtschenko, 
revealed that the 4O00T motherboards 
will be produced in the United States 
near Philadelphia, and computers 
marked for American dislrlbufion will 
be assembled in tfre $ame place. 

At the time of going to press, the 
gompany was still looking for a North 
American partner that would be willing 
to support and invest in their product. 
We hope to bring our US feaders fuller 
details as they are revealed. 



flf the package, games players are also catered 
for with the inclusion of Pinball Mania, a new title 
by 2lSt Century, and Whizz from Microvalue Flair,. 
The HO package will include the same bundle 
of software plus Seal a UM200. the leading multi- 
media authoring package. The same bundle is 
currently set to ship with the 4000T as well. 
although there's a possibility thai Seala's MM300 
will be replaced by the upgrade. MIV1400. 

Amiga Technologies cSeariy hope a strong burv 
die Will put pay to complaints about the Amiga's 
pricing. Jonathan Anderson. MD of Amiga 
Technologies UK, claimed thai the standard 
A 1200 pack's software had a combined average 
street value of £497, while adding Seal a for the 
HD version could save buyers as much as £677. 

Anderson also said tre was particularly pleased 
by their success in securing such up-to-date ver- 
sions of eacfi software product. He commented; 
"As far as I know, Wordworth, Personal Paini and 
Turbocaic are brand new products which the pub- 
lishers do not intend to launch until nejd year." 

The only possible bad news is for American 
users, since this bundle Is only confirmed for 



European distribution. Whether Amigas sold in 
America wilt be standalone or have a dlHerenl 
software package is still under discussion. 

An announcement is also imminent on the iden- 
tity of the two trade suppliers to tjs used by Amiga 
Technologies. According to CTW, the trade news- 
paper, Amiga Technologies have already appoint- 
ed Amiga stalwarts SDL 
and I hey are on the verge 
ot signing Leisuresoft 
up as their other 
partner.

HeathraiiJ press canference 



On Wednesday 16 August, Amiga Technologies held a press conference to officiaiJy 
announce the relaunch of the Amiga line of computers in the UK, The day after it was 
followed by a meeting with developers in which ihe company's UK strategy was out- 
lined. The main news was the announcement of an A1200 bundle including a 170f* 
hard drive priced at E499- For full details read the in The Hot Seat article featured in 

this issue. 

If was also oonfinried that the 4O00T will initially be without a high density floppy di^ 
drive. The reason given for this was the diffjcully in obtaining components following ttie, 
bankruptcy of Ihe company involved in the production of the drives for the 4000 
desktop unit.

Following our focus on animators in last 
month's issue, the Amiga is due to 
receive another dose of creative laienl 
following the announcement ot an exhibi- 
tion of work by artist Paul Hamilton on 
4-29 October- 
Named Artificial Eyes, the event will

new line of accelerators. Though the new Falcon range was cteveiop&d hy Macro Systems, Power Computing 
tiave bought exclysive distribution nghts for everywtiere, apart from Benelux and QBrmany. 

Dsveioped for use with the A1200, the first Falcon accelerator will feature an 040 processor - roughly 14 
times fasler, the same spe(»d as an A4000 - and a single SIMM sock&t allowrrvg for FastRAM expansion. It wlil 
also tiave a SCSI 3 tr>[erface allowing for greater transfer speeds , and the package will include a fan to cool the 
board.

IhB ei|B5 haue it 



As well as presenting its strategy for the Amiga's 
relaunch at ihe Heathrow press conference, Amiga 
Techpalogies also unveiled the new virtual reality 
(■glasses for the first time in the UK. 

As reported last month, the Virtual l-glasses are 
matte ir. America by Virtual J-0, but Escom have exclu- 
sive disiribution rigtifs for the product in Europe. 
Newly fevealsd, however, was the fact that there will 
be two ditrerenl models on the market. The virtual 
reality headsets don't come cheap though. The basic 
video mocJej that allows users to see compLiier and 
film images m 2D and 3D will cost ES99. wtiile a PC 
version inciucfing a he ad- tracker for use with 3D 
garrtes will cost £399. 

Escom slated that Ihe range of applications for the 
tieadsels Is almosl unlimited. At ifie press conference 
II was claimed that the makers are already in discus- 
sions with film moguls like Steven Spielberg, and they 
tiivB shown great interesi In the technology's 
potential. 

There are also plans to develop a version of the 
teadset for use In dentist's surgeries. Instead of lyirvg 
with (heir eyes screwed up in terror, palients wiil be 
atiiai to retajt watching a film while the dentist drills 
away at their teeth. Apparently they are already tneihg 
used In the US tor this purpose, 

'Cur product gives patients an out-Haf-mouIti experi- 
ence by taking the focus away from what the dentist is 
doing," said Virtual i-o President Linden Rhoads, 
They enable people to watch movies, educational 
pfogrannming and even play video games while they 
have their teelh worked on." 

The AT panel went on to reveal that the lightweight 
tieadsets made them ideal for the private viewing of 
eroiic movies, but whether (his capability will toe com- 
blried with tha dentist's version is currently unclear. 




The video version of the glasses will connect to the 
Amiga's composiie output port. As yet, the head- 
tracker version has no software support on ihe 
Amiga, however. 

Asked if they planned to sell the product in the UK, 
nriajor retailers Silica replied ihat they had not made 
any decision on Ihe matter MD John Arundel would 
not discount the possibility, however. "If it's a product 
that supports the Amiga then we will certainly be 
interested in taking it." he commented.

Rmigas meet 
the public 

'on 26 AuQusI 1o 3 September, Amiga 
Technologies presenled the Amiga to 
the public for the fifst Ume since 
CommodOTe's demise 1 B monllTS ago at 
the IFA fair iin Berlin. Tine compai^y 
bought space in which lo present not 
only the Amig&s hut also the CD 32 in dif- 
ferent configurations running uarious 

applications- 

The event is seen as important by 
industry commentators concerned that 

the Amiga's relaunch is not gaining a 
high enough profile. Retro Tyscht- 
schenkD previously announced at a 
press conference in August that there 
were no plans to advertise the Amiga 
until 1996.

Amiga web users who are tired of hearing about ttie wonders o1 
the Netscape Internet software will be pieased by the announce- 
ment of a more powerful browser designed solely for the Amiga 
Designed by the makers ol AMosaic, not only does it promise to 
improve vastly on its predecessor, but ii also offers features 
unavailable on the much vaunted PC/ Mac rival. 

A browser is the software that makes navigating the Internet a 
graphically appealing and user-friendly experience, but up to 
now Amiga users have had to use the relatively slow AMosaic 
2 Named I Browse, the new Amiga software is claimed to be up to 
afctJll 3.0 times faster according to the latest reports from its develop- 
' ers, it will also be packed with advanced features, including the 
ability to use multiple windows to a greater e«lenl than AMosaic. It will support HTML 1-3 and Netscape 
commands wtiich will albw for a lull viewing of sites previously 
limited for Amiga owners. 

Like Neiscape, it will come with a powerful point and click tool 
bar. bul the interface will have the adcted advantage of being fully 
configurable which will allow users to customise ttie package to 
suit their needs. It will also start up without the need to launch 
AmiTGP lirst. 

Perhaps the best news of all is that the program is likely to be 
released as shareware, We hope to leature the program in 
Amiga Computinsfs December issue, but in the mean time read- 
ers can gel further information at the following web site:

Hnight raises standard 



Wtiiie Knight TechnolHjgies is continuing to 
give high-end Amiga users strong support, 
with announcements this month of new 
products and services. Recently appointed 
as Macrosystem's office i at UK distributor, 
they will be selling: the Draco digital video 
system featured as this issue's main storjf. 
In the lulu re. they will also be distribut- 
ing a new 32-bit version of VLAB motion, 
the acclaimed Amiga edi;ting card for 
video, WKT claim il will offer far greater 
video data transfer rates, lower Jpeg com- 
pression ratios and generally far supenor 
picture quality than can ije achieved on the 
current Amiga version, 

White Itnight now have a demonstration 
suite at their otfices in Herttordshire whidi 
will allow customers to test out a non-linear 
video editing system incorporating not only 
VI^B motion but also the Toccata sound 
card and the Retina graphics board. 
Customers who wish to test these products 
are invited fo telephone for an 
appointment- 

They are also offering a new product for 
serious LfcghtWave users. Named T-Nei, it 
will allow users 10 distribute the task of ren- 
dering a number of frames from many 
scenes on LightWave over a net- 



work of Amigas, Made by InleFworks 
USA, il is designed for use with the 
makers elhernet software ELAN-DFS 2 
and multiple copies of NewTek's 
acclainned rendering package. 

Using T'Nel, all tfie machines will 
share the same scene files, objects and 
image data, and each machine on the 
network renders its frames to a shared 
common location, A single Amiga 
equipped with either the Broadcast Elite, 
a PAR card, or VLAB rrwtion can ttien be 
used to output ihe rendered sequences 
to video tape- 
According to WKT, the software's pow- 
erful features will allow users to efficiently 
manage and delegate the distribution of 
frames across the network. It will be pos- 
sible to monitor the progress and stahjs 
of each system on the user's 'render 
farm' at a glance using a graphic repre- 
sentation of each node showing its 
current rendering stalus- 

The price is set for E299 for a T-Net 
with a 5 user license. For further details 
or to arrange lo &ee a demonstration, call 
WTiite Knight on 01920 822321.

Hmigas For Uganda 

Dr Andrew Basden, inventor at the 
INCA Expert System featured in our 
September issue, is starting a new Ini- 
tiative to send Amigas to Uganda for 
educational purposes. 

Accordirtg lo Dr Basden , the Amiga 
is tfiB best machine for the job tiecauss 
it can just be plugged into a TV wHhout 
requiring a monitor. He is hoping that 
people with unwanted Amigas or ewen 
components will send them in Iw tki 
appeal. T^ose with Itie remnants d an I 
unused ASOO at the back of a cuptwarrl 
somewtiere should write lo Dr Basdei: j 
at 24, Penrith Close, Frod&tiam^

Workbench: 1 .3 

A good text editor Is essential for every 
Amiga owner. From just beings able to 
alter your user-startup to writing your e- 
rmeils. you cannot gel away from (he 
need for this esseniial utility, Let's face 
it., the standard Ed that comes with 
Workbench is pretty feeble in both the 
power aind looks department, with 
Commodore doing a typical good job of 
ignoririg atl its own style guides, 

CygnusEd purports to be thS' fastest 
text editor available for the Amiga, and 
probably any computer. Once you have 
tried it I am sure you will agree that 
wtiether you are writing a ten line a- 
mail or need to view a 10.000 line man- 
ual, CygnusEd will let you happily jump 
to any point in She text. read, write and 
modify the file in a hiink of an eye 
Even your basic A600 will handle kilo- 
bytes of text Without breaking into a 
sweat. 

I am sure most of you are quite profi- 
cient with using a keyboard and Ihe 
language of your choice, and with 
ihese basic skills you should find 
CygnusEd a doodle to use and should

be able to produce reams of text In no 
lime at all. 

As CygnusEd has evolved over (he 
last eight years it has picked up some 

pretty impressive and very useful fea- 
tures along its way. Potentially ore oi 
the most useful or lifesaving tu notions Is 
the extremely comprehensive undo/redc 
option. Basically, CygnusEd has a- 
unlimited undo buffer, only restricted hv 
how much memory you want il lo be 
able 10 use. 

Mosi editors at the most only allov, 
you to undo/redo the last action or lint 
worth of teKt. Well there's none of M\m 
pussy footing about for CygnusEd, i" 
you have a big enough undo bjffer yoi 
could delete every line from a lext, and 
then simply by pressing right Amiga u 
you can watch as ttie entire text magi- 
cally reappears line by line in front ot 
your very eyes, 

ADJUSTMENTS 

The Environment menu in CygnusE; 
actually consists of ihree 'hiddei. 
menus, letting you adjust almosi ever, 
aspect of the editor - from the lypicF. 
options of screen size, font type arc 
word wrap to the more unusual one; 
such as letting you adjust the scree' 
scroll borders and the exact w 
positioning. 

Another unusual feature is the wa', 
CygnusEd bandies multiple Hies, If yc^ 
choose to open another document th 
CygnusEd screen will split into tw* 
allo'iwing you to view and edit both at I 
same time. This is very handy it 
need to look at some refefsnce rr^ate 
while doing some writing, and is 
than having to resettle wiih multt| 
windows. 

For all you people out there wlj 
Workbench Z or above you are gerngi 
be able to take advantage

Amiga [omputing brings tiau anatfief Ml cnmmsrddf mduct - 

[tjgnt/5fd. the fastest tent ed/tar tftju can tuti. fffsa incfudeif 

is the test se/ettm of this month's ffminet domnfoads 



'programmers out there will be able to 
gel CygnusEd to aLFtomatically save and 
compile lh& current program (hey are 
working on, all ffom ihe comfgrl of 
CvgnusEd. If you wanted, you could gel; 
il Eo save off diMerent versions each 
ttma you compile, 

Possibly of more interest to Joe 
Bloggs is the fact that CygnusEd has a 
versatUs macro tunclion which lets you 
retard 3 nurnber ol ditterent keystrokes 
and rrenu functions which can then be 
repeated over and over again, What is 
Ihe point in that? Well. 1 will tdll you. If 
you tiave a long: list ttial needs reformat- 
irng, why should you have to do the 
same thing for every lirie? All you have 
to do is record a macro, showing what 



you want to b« repeated for each line. 
Once that is done you can then get 

CygnusEd to do all the hard work by it 
repeating Ihe macro for each and every 
line. 

TOTAL SUPPORT 

Included with the CygnusEd package 
are a number of support programs - 
Ed, MacEd and RecovefCED fiJes. Ed 
is a small program that can be used to 
launch the main CygnusEd executable. 
You do not have to yso this to run 
CEO, but if you use it there are a num- 
ber of advantages. Firstly, it allows you 
to run CygnusEd in a dormant state, 
meaning the main CED window wiH not 
appear. Then, when you want to use 



If you should find your Amiga 
Compc/fffig CoverOisk damaged or 
faulty, please return it to: 

TfB Pic. TfB House. 11 Edward 
Street, Bradford, W. Yorks BD4 
7BH. 

Please allow 28 days for delivery 



CED it will appear straight away- Using 

Ed, it is aJso possible to load a lile 

directly into a copy CED that is already 
up and running. 

MacEd has nothing what so ever to 
do with Macs, you will be glad to know. 
It lets you create and modify 
CyginusEd's macros away from the main 
program, 

Finally, RecoverCED files is a handy 
liitJe program which, if your machine 
crashes while you are working on a doc- 
ument, will try ils best to recover those 
files. It is not guaranteed lOO per cent, 
but any chance of getting lost files back 
is better than none at all. 

If yoLi are hawing problems with any 
of CygnusEd's (unelioos then there is 
an extremely comprehensive Amiga 
Guide document detailing every aspect 
of CygnusEd, Other than that, the besi 
way of finding oul about CygnusEd's 
functions is just to try out all of those 
lovely menu items, >

MandSOOO has to be the best fractal exploration 
program available for ihe Amiga computer. It pro- 
vides a super simple interface combined with a 
Stupilyingly fast screen update. 

Exploring a fractal in Mand2000 is simply a 
matter of double-cdching where you want to go 
and you will instantly zoom Into the area you 
chose. If you want to decrease the zoom amount 
just press the D hey, and you zoom straight out, 
AJso, if you want to move to a slightly different 
position, simply click on the Mandelbrot and sIkJe 
Ihe area to where you want it. 

One of the impressive parts of Mand2lXl€ is the 
wirvdow approach it takes. You can literally have 
dozens of separate fractal windows open all 
stiowing different parts, of the Mandelbrot set - 
you can even have a separate window open 
showifvg what part of the Mandelbrot you are cur- 
rently looking al. The program is not restricted lo 
only Ihe Mandelbrots as it will also allow you to 
aiq^rethe Juliaset. 

If you own an AG A machine, Mand2000 lets 
you access a bewi:(dering number ol screen 
modes, supporting HamS and Ham6 screens 







resolutions alj the way up to i280xS1S - allowing 
every window you open lo have its own separate 
pa^tte. 

The real protslem with trying to explore fractals 
is ihal frie deeper you go info Ihem, the longer il 
takes to produce each screen, Mand2000 give 
you a number of options to allow you to preview or 
speed up the screefi drawing process, Firslty, you 
can change the number of iterations the compuier 
will perform - docraasing the number of iterations

increases the screen speecf, hul reduces detail. 

The other option you car use is ihe number of 
passes Mand2000 will make lo draw the screen. 
The effect is that on the first pass Itie picture is 
highly pixelated. with each successive pass adding 
more detail lo the screen. If you only want a rough 
idea of what you are Sooking al this Is an excellent 
feature because you can interrupt the 
drawing process and keep on moving around the 
fractal.

Every one must have seen the 
Windoze startup picture, witti the little 
blocks all evaporating away. It may 
seem a trivial poinl but ill's quite nice lo 
tiave some sort ot picture (o look at 
while you wait for Workbench to load. 

Commodore may not have seen a 
rea&on for including some sort of boot 
picture, but From all the small utilities 
and the number of boot pictures that 
pop up on the Aminet, rtiost of us s&&nr> 
to want one. A boot picture that is. 

PfcBoot was one of tfie eartiesl boot 
picture utilities I can remember This 
latest vers-iori provides you with load of 
options For siartefs, it can handle both 
GIF artd IFF files, and the routine that 
unpacks them is extremely fast - so the 
time it takes to boot up your computer 
is not changed too much. 

If you use Ihe xpk compression 
libraries, PicBoot will even handle IFFs 
that tiave been compressed. It is also 
possible to fade in and out your cho$en 
picture, which fooks quite flash, and will 
even fade in Workbench if you so wish. 
AGA owners will atso have the benefit 
of a silky smooth 24-bit fade. 

Ail you people with a callectian of dif- 
rerenl possible bool pictures wilE be 
pleased to know that PicBoot can use a 
script file to randomly choose one of 
the pictures. So you will never get 
bored wiih the same picture being 
flicked up every lime you boot your 
machine.

To quote ttie author: "Clouds is Ihe first program 
on the Amiga platform giving you visual model- 
Sing and realistic animation, of the turbulent 
motion of ctouds. It is based on spectral synthe- 
sis method. The method employs a variety of 
intuitive parameters describing natural properties 
of clouds phenomena, as cloudiness, contrast, 
wiind direction, strength o1 wind, and turbulent 
changes. 

"Such a wide range of controls allows a cre- 
ative animator to generate all kinds of clouds, 
gases, mists and so forth. Resulting images can 
then be used as bacligrounds, textures in 3-D 
programs, or alpha channel information - to 
mention Just a few possibiiities." 

Blimey, sounds pretty impressive does it not? 



Basically. Clouds will produce be^ulifuHy anim- 
ated cfouds that will roll across your screen with 
such majesty, you will be InstantEy relaxed. Well, I 
feel better already.

Slagging ott the standard Commodore utilities is always a favoutiie hobby of mine and it 
has to be said thai 'more' is pretty dire- What you need is a decent texl reader. Well h 
and bahold, it locks like Martin BUwn had ihe same idea. 

Text Read is a powerful style guide compliant text reader and will happily handle xpk>d 
and power packer files, Some of the nice features of Text Read are ihe search facility, 
jump to line^iercentage, and a handy scroti bar to let you quickly scan through any docu- 
ment. It is also possible to specify what font and screen mode you want, and print and 
savB of the current document.

This could he just the ihing for 
anyone with a large catalogue of 
pictures on their hard drive, or 
any of the picture CDs that are 

floating around the PD house ai

Pic View allows you to produce 
a catalogue of all your pictures. It 
is very simple lo operate as you 
use Ihe file requester to select 
which pictures you wish to cata- 
logue, and go. For each picture a thumb nail, grey-scaie representation is produced, 

Once the catalogue is made, you scroll through the list oF images and double-click 
on an images to display that particular picture, or just gel certain information about Hie 
picture - such as its size, name and where it is, If you have a large coileclion, it is pos- 
si We to group related pictures together, making finding a particular imwge much easier, 

Pic View uses dataiypes lo import the various piciures, so whatever piclure 
datatypes you have, pic view will handle. Currently, that could include IFF, PCX, BMP, 
Jpeg, Targa, Mac Paint. Tiff. PNG and even Klondike card sets,

Essenilalky, it allows you to access Adobe

want a new one. Well, the old BMP

coksur pictures, When IBful released OS.^2, 
Itwif tfecided they wanted ttieir own spe-

As we are a friendly bunch down here a.l 
Amiga Computing we talk to sach other, 
and seeing as we mentioned the Font 




IT you remember, last month we had a Tiff datatyiM 
on the CoverDisk. Well, from the same author we now 
have Tiflview. The title ol lhe program is a little mis- 
leading because as well as being able 10 ^iew Tiff 
files, Itiere are a whole host of options and functions 
avaitaWe for you. 

For starters, Titfview directly supports IFF, Tiff. 
Jpeg, GIF and MacPaint picture formats, as well as 
any datatypes you may have. Vou (hen have a whole 
choice of display options. Firstly, you can choose 
what screen mode you want the picture to be dis- 
played in - obviously AGA and graphic card owners 
have a nice advantage here. 

You can then, choose from five dittiering methods 
which improve the visual qu&lily, along with how 
many colours the image sliould be dithered to. This is 
helpful If you do not have a 256 colour display 
because it greatly improyes the image quaiity. 



An •Tlrwnaff varaalttB prctur* vlmmar that 
iv4ir t*m«ll« many diHrrwnt fvmtula 

Once an image is loaded, Tiflview can act as a mini 
image conwerter, letting you save off a piiclure either 
as an IFF. Trff or Jpeg. II you choose lo use Jpeg you 
have a choice about the quaiity of the saved image,. 
As Jpe^ 15 a lossy picture formal, a high ccmpression 
ratio means lower image quality, while a low 
cgmpression ratto teadsto better image quaiity. 



datatype in the putilishing page, I thought 
it might be ni:ce to have ii on Itie 
CoverDisk - aren't I a gem? What do you 

mean, no? 

Anyway, tins datatype will let you view 
any installed system fonts in MultiView. Afl 
you do is drop load the bLar.font file and 
the next thing yoHj know, you wilt have a 
large picture with all lhe avaitaMe charac-

IFF (TlastEr r

Have you aver wondered wfvat 
lurked In the deepest, darkest, 
dankest depth of your IFF files? 
Well probably not. This is a fairly j 
handy HHte program that lets you 
poke about with the inaldes of IFF 

'''*^- Mt»tttar tarmty MW FrogrAV. Iff Hattsr I* 

IFF files are split up into ^^u ^uickty a^^stm* mII fe*u so^Umt:tivtt 

cfiunks. each chunk containing 

different information about the fife. For example, an tLBM tile has a bitmap header 

and colour map chunks. IFF master knows about ttiese. so can show you the 

palette used by an ILBWI. and also the dimensions and other information about the 

picture.

To continue with the animation tfieme, TAPaui allows you to view 
lhe standard Winckj/e video format AVI. The main advantage of 
AVI over FLI is that it allows animations lo include sound, and it 
was designed to play back animalions direct off disk, in some ways 
(I is similar to lhe CDXL formal. 

TAPavi will handle a number of diHerent types of AVi files, 
including both 8 and 16-bit colour modes. If you have an AGA 
machine then you will be able to view any of the animations in 
glorious 25$ eotours. 

As lor sound, TAPavi will happily alkjw you to play both 8 and 
16-bit scund out through the Amiga's nomnal audio. One problem, 
however, is tNt if your machine cannot play back an animation at 
its full frame rate, the sound may be a little corrupt, but this 
happens on PC so it's only to be expected. 



use it just double-click the nasty looking 

icon and use the Tequester to pick your 
chosen animation. Even thougti Flick 
runs under 2.04. it supports a great deal 
ol advanced options. It will take (ull 
advantage of Workbench 3 by using the 
new OS double buffering routines. 

Users with either EGS or Cybervision 
graphics cards will be able to use flick 
directly on them. AGA owners are not left 
out as Flick will allow you to replay ani- 
mations in there full 256 colour glory. It 
you have a CD32, Flk;k will even use the 
Akiko chip. 

There are also numerous oltier replay 
options for DCS or ECS owners which 
allow different replay modes depending 
on what number of colours you would 
like. For those e^tra large animations. 
Flick will spool directly off a disk, and all 
the options can be changed in the icons 
tools types. 

Considering aill FLI animations have to 
be converted, from chunky to planar, you 
gel very good replay speeds on a plain 
At20€ -even when spooling on a CD,

REVIEW 



10 oui of 10 Software coniiriiue 
their educational series with 
Essential Science, a cotlection ot 
six games designed to educate the S to 
12-yeaf old. To cope wilh such a wide 
age range, Ihe package has ai user-defin- 
able level of difficulty aod the child can 
pfogress in a sei of dear-cut stages. 

Games vary from Steamer, where you 
must choose correct measurements, for 
example, to Shuttle, a cunningly dis- 
guised educalional asteroids game that 
requires the player to identify the conftci 
animal. Spectrum aims to give the player 
scientific facts irf an interesting way, such 
as ibentilying parts of the body or parts of 
a flower, Space Watk also requires tfie 
id ent Hi cation of certain objects from a 
given Hjescription, and Microscope lets the 
child uncover facts as if under a 
h/licfoscope. 

MarKs are awarded for every game and 
stars given for each section wtiich telt the 
child how m:uch progress has been made. 
The parent or teacher can also check 
progress as toyr different colours indicate 
levels of success. Red indicates help 
needed, yellow signifies practice n&eded, 
green is given for full marks, and blue 
medals are for continued success. 

UNAPPEALING 

M first glance, though, it's hardly an 
appealing package. And what instantly 
strikes about Essential Science is the 
appalling graphics. It wouW be an insult to 
the Spectrum ZX to say the graphics 
resembled one of their earlier games 
tjecau&e these are probably worse. When 
most doting parents are !?uying PCs for 
their precious Luke or Ivcy to educate 
ihem tti rough glossy mulii media pack- 
ages, then there's nothing more guaran- 
teed 10 make the 'educational Amiga' die 
a death than ugly titles like tfib. 

Forlunateiy though. It's content thai 
matters, and Educational Science is rela- 
tively prof'ncient in this area, Ttie activities 
are varied enough and will suit children In 
this range, Some are very good such as 
the measuring et^rcises and they do 
teach some of the rudiments of science 
quite we4t. 

However, al the other end of the scale, 
sofrie of the activities defy belief. One of 
them requires you to uncover an object 
undemieeth one of the slides as if it were 
a microscope,. The child then has to

uncover the right weather picture with 
Ihe right weather text, for enampie. 
However, some of them look far loo 
similar and a younger player is 
going to need help initially - an 
adult would probably have to think 
about it toO'. For instar>ce. at first il 
would seem a beni over tree 
wouSd represent virind - that is until 
you find a kite and realise this is in 
fact wind. This happens on a num- ,^ 
ber of occasions and it's not that the i 
exerdse is perticutarly difficult, but more 
that the pictures are hard to identify. 

The instructions for some of the actiivi- 
ties are also rather bewildering such as. 
Which here has never been alive at any 
lime?' - nicety put. Or how atx^ut, 'Wbich 
of these is now dead?' where one of the 
answers is Turkey Slices. It's enough to 
make you turn vegetanan and does little to 
help a child's understanding. 

One thing that hasn't realty been 
thought out is how to maintain the child's 
interest. The target age range will have

Forget setting fire to tfour rufer 

mith the tunsen turner or cutting 

off the frags legs and putting 

them down nnur friend's jumper. 

IB out of IB Software haue a new 

wail of teaching science 



very short attention spans and simple 
things that could have held their interesJ 

such, as sound etfecls. appear to tiava 
been neglected. The computer pings or 
'bleeps in appropriate places but their i; 
little else. 

It does redeem itself, thougn, 
with the Certificate system, whera 
the players can either print o*jl or 
show on screen the progress 
made. This would be ideal r-' a 
school situation or where itw fam- 
ily has two or more children 
because it gives the players 
something to strive for. 

Mm the lurang 
trath 

This isn't a particularly bad title, in fact 
seme of the activities are quite reason- 
able, and it has been well structured far 
the wide age range. However, this is 
nowhere near up to the same standard 
as their other 1 out of 1 titles, and a 
little more attention to detail would have 
paid dividends.

HARDWARE 



H> 



t may seem strange thai a com- 
pany would release a flicker fixer 
in this day of high speed graphic 
cards, arvd the DblPAL capable AGA chip 
sel. A few years ago there was good rea- 
son for getting hold of a flicker fixer, as' 
fhis was the only way \o use 540 ^512 
screen resolutions without going Mind. So 
if all you need !o do riowadaya is buy a 
cheap VGA monitor to access these tiigh 
resolutions, why on Earth do you need a 
flicker fixer? 

If you own an A40O0, Ih-e optior\s avail- 
aWe to yoti when it comes to choosing a 
monitor are tsrirly limiting. You either 
splash out on an expensive multisync 
monitor Ihat will allow you to worit in any 
resolution, or plump tor a cheap VGA 
monitor and lose the ability to display any 
of the standard low sync screen modes 
the Amiga uses. 

Whichever option you choose, the only 
way you can use the AGA's high resolu- 
tion modes i& via Ihe scan-doubled 
modes, such as DblPAL. This comes with 
a number of drawbadis - (irsUy DblPAL is 
horribly slow, especiaily when you use 
more than four bitpHanes. The reason for 
this is that Ihe DMA channels are so busy 
just keeping the display hardware 
supplied wilh screen data that there is 
virtually r»o time left lo be able to update 
the screen. 

VIDEO DRAWBACK 

The second drawback is that you can- 
not u$e these screen modes to record 
video. This requires using a PAL or 
NTSC, if you are American, screen mode. 

The addition of ihe flicker fixer will allow 
you to access all the Amiga's screen 
modes on a nonnai VGA monitor. This is 
achieved by the f I letter fixer scan doubling 
the PAL modes up lo a rate that nonnai 
VGA monitors can handle. For video peo- 
ple tiis is pretty darn usefuS, as you can 
use an interlaced screen for your video 
work without having lo actually view those 
nasty flickery interlaced screens. It will 
even lei you play games on a monitor - if 
you do that sort of thing. 

Installation of Ihe nicker liscer is as easy 
as it gets for a Zorro card. The card has 
to reside in the A4000's video sbt, which 
is typically the bottom one. So it the video 
slot is already in use. the flicker fixer is 



Built-in fiH 




saess Bll thE scfBBn ^ i 

modes mu want caurtesti 

of thB flifkBf fiHBf. M aishf rsukms 



not going to be of rrtuch use - unless you 
like expensive wall decorations, or you 
feel like popping out and buying an 
A4000T. 

Once the card has been slotted In 
place, when you reboot your machine you 
can gasp and coo at Ihe new ftickeriess 
screens. If you were already using a 
DblPAL screen mode, you will have to tir^ 
delete the ScreenMode.prefs file from the 
ENVARCiSys drawer before you can con- 
tinue, as the fliclier fixer as not too keen on 
scan doubling a scan-doubled screen. 

You are provided with three video out- 
puts - for the monilor a typical VGA 1 5 pin 
RGB output, and lor video connection you 
have a composite and SVHS sockels. 
There is also a single switch that allows 
you to choose between the card being 
able to display lull vertical overscan or 
1440 horl2onlal pixels in Super Hi-res 
mode. The switch is provided because the 
board cannot automatically detect what 
1 SKhz mode the Amiga is in. 

The flicker fixer also provides de-inter- 
lacing of other Amiga screan modes. 
Pnmarity Super72 and MulliScan, this will 
allow you to use &00*6O0' and 640x1 0£4 
screen modes llicker free. Vou should, 
however.. cheelt beforehand that your 
monitor will be able to cope with those 



One problem with the flicker lixer is Oiat atl Ihe lumpars used lo adjusi the lim- 
ing of the picture are not located al the end. alonq with the switch and sockets. 
This moani! (I you have any other r lo adjust 

lh" - ^ '-aslcallyend up pi - , ■ i'l <^'^wr 

li m 

An associated problem is thai Ihr ..wmy c( ilic picture is 

also located on lire board, which ay.-, ^ y awkward. The A3000 

had a flicker fixer built m - why they did not do Ihe same wtth the A4000 1 do not 
hnow tiul the A300O hrul its p' ' "d on Ihe out&irif -^ss 

These problems are nol loo ..- . . ■' > "<^' ft>e flic^- ! up. 

you do nol tiave lo access the lumpers or th' n 



sync rates of 

up to 64kHz. The 

standard flicker fixer is 
a PAL-only version - apparently, ttiere 'S 
a special NTSC version that will allow 
Americans to use the SVHS find 
corrposite outputs on NTSC devices. 

If you are looking for a complete solu-^^ 
rion that will allow you lo display aliH 
Amiga screen modes, ttien a flicker fixer, 
is the only real answer. The AGA flicKar 
fixer is a very nice piece of kit, but even 
so. £4D0 is an awful lot of money to asu 
for It. Especially considering flicker fixers 
used to cost E 1 25 a few years ago. £g

ell finally we've had a Zip drive 
10 look al. I know we've been 
promising it for quite a while 
now, but the facts of the matter are tin at 
lOcnega, the company thai produces the 
Z(p, has been so inundated with orders 
in the Slates thai none of ttieir produc- 
tion run has reached these shores. 
However, thanks to a licencing deal with 
Epson, the Zip should be in plentiful 
supply by the time you read this piece- 
First impressions of the Zip are ueiy 
good, It's a gorgeous looking bit of kit, 
Its lines reminiscent of something out of 
Bladerunner. Ttae drive , as you can see^ 
is a metallic blue, m splendid contrast lo 
the drab beiges we have been used to 
fof computer peripherals for a long time 
now. 

The rear end of the drive show$ us 
two 25-way SCSI ports - in and out - for 
pulling the Zip In the middle of a SCSI 
ctiam, a tefmination switch - on or off - 
and a SCSI ID switch, Ttie ID switch is 
the only possible problem with the Zip 
as you can only use SCSI IDs five and 
Six, which might be a pain for A3000 
owners. But with this being the Zip's 
only limitafton, I can see a day when 
SCSI unit fiva or six is the standard 
position for a Zip in the way [hat three is 
there for CD-RDM Of lape back up, 

The Zip's power supply plugs into the 
side of the drive usi^ng a right-angle plug 
which slots inio the side of the drive, 
leaving thai: edge flush - wtiich is jolly 
handy as you might want to stand the 
Zip on its side. The Zip has two lights at 
the front and an eject button ihat feels 
gust like the old Spectrum keyboard. 
Overall, its dimensions are not much 
larger than a standard external floppy 
drive unit, and it weighs le$s than most 
external drK/es I have seen. 

The disks the Zip uses look almost 
like normal floppy disks, apart from the 
fact that they are somewhat thicker and 
have a small shutter. They also don't 
have a write protect lab. but more of 



[hQ3p, fast, gnad... 
but big 

If you want a Zip. but you really need 
more space per disk, lOmega will be 
taring ing out a new drive based on the 
technology used in the Zip, called the 
Jaz drive. The Jaz looks similar to the 
Zip but is a bit taller and the disks are 
also about twice as thick. 

The big difference Is in the capacity 
of the dlslts tfie Jaz uses. While the 
Zip seems impressive storing 100Mb 
to s disk, the Jaz will astonish 
because it can fiold a staggering one 
gigabyte on each disk. Ttiie only 
potential flies in Ifw ointment are the 
Facts that the Jai won't be available 
for some time and that it will be con- 
srd'srabfy more expensive than the 
Zip. 



Ihat latec There is an interesting prism- 
like device o.n the left-hand comer of the 
disk nearest the shutter, which may be 
somethincf to stop nrianufacturers from 
copying the disk design - SyQuest own- 
ers will know the number ol different 
manufacturers of cartridges (or their dri- 
ves. Sliding back the shutter reveals a 
single disk, again much like a floppy, 
only with air on either side of the disk 
rather than being sandwiched between 
cloth. 

RATE OF KNOTS 

inserting a disk into the Zip drive 

results in the disk being brought up to 
speed at a rale (hat will surprise and 
delight SyQuest owners - the disk being 
ready for use within about four seconds, 
Once it is ready, the disk will read and 
write data at a sustainable rate of about 
1Mb a second. Ves, a meg a second. 
Pretty impressive for a removable media 
device. 

The Zip is only currently available in 
an SKtemai version, although an tnternal 
one isn't out of the realms of possibility 
and there are two versions of the disks 
that it uses. The IDOMb disk is readily 
available, bul the ^5Mb disk's future 
looks in doubt. After all, who is going to 
want a 25Mb disk for only slightly less 
than the 100Mb version? HiSoft wiH also 
be shipping the Zip with an adaptor lo 
link it up to a Squirrel, and a set of tools 
for formatting and toggling write protec- 
(ion which is controlled through 



software, rather than using a write 
protect tab. 

It seems that the Zip drive actually 
breaks one of the primary rules of com- 
puting - take any two ol ihe fotlowinj 
three terms:- Cheap, Fast, Good 
Basically, you can have something that! 
is fast and good but not cheap, cheap! 
and fast but not gonxi - you get the idea 
But the Zip seems to break this rule anrtl; 
goes for all three at once, 'With a pncft] 
below £200 it certainly isn't ejfpensiva -j 
we were paying that for a bare 10SM 
Quantum hard drtve not so long ago 
and at a meg a second, the Zip certaini 
compares favourably with an internal 
hard drive. So ttiat's fast taken care of, 
and with its looks and overall useful- 
ness, you haven't got a good product 
you've got a great one, j7a

waiting 1fl months for since th« 
demise of the old Commodore 
Empine: (tie Amiga is bacit, said Ihe men 

from Escom, and on targel to Init tlie 
sireels of Britain in time for September. 

Tfie officiai UK relauncti ol ttie Amiga 
took place al a press conference at ttie 
Sheraton Hotel in Heatfirow on a swel- 
tering summer day in mid-Augiist. 
Optirnisls might have taken ttie sunshine 
*$ 3 good omen, bul difficult questions 
had been fermenting during the months 
aino& the lakeover, however, and Amiga 
Computing was there to find out what 
sut>stance lay bet^ind the talk. 

The panel assembled to state Amiga 
Technologies" case included most of the 
liey players from Europe and Briiain, 
whicti al least showed some encourag- 
m commitment to the key UK market. 
^e:ra TyschtschenkO', the company's 
general manager, was aocompanied by 
Jonathan Anderson and John Smith of 
Amiga Technology UK, plus PR man 
Qilles Bourdin, and Barry Thurston of 
SCALA who was Ihere lo orchestrate 
he rnultimedia presentation. 

h soon became apparerit, however. 



that the amount of new and corkcret^ 
infomnation available was rather limited. 
The announced sf>ecificatians for the roU- 
out Amigas, tor example, held no surp- 
rises, with even the faster 060 version of 
the 4000T not available until November 
at ttie earliest , 

Amiga Technologies were not In a 
position 10 disclose much more about the 
contents of ttie software to be bundled 
with new Amigas erther, John Smith, UK 
Sales Manager, revealed that 1200s 
would includ* a database, word proces- 
sor, spreadsheet, paint package and two 
games, but specific product names were 
unavailable. 

BUNDLED UP 

The confusion over how Scala was 
going to be combined with laoOs was 
finally cleared up, with the announce- 
ment of two different Ai2CK> bundles. The 
£399 bundle announced last month will 
lack a hard drive, and it was decided that 
it woiilid be impractical to include SCALA 
with this option. Consequently, a E499 
package was announced containing: an 
Amiga with a built-in 170Mb tiard drive 



ITlarhGting a legend 



Agked H there were any plans to advertise the Amiga products, Tyachtschenko 
replted that this would not be possible until n«Kt year. This means that at the 
time when Microaoft and the Japanese cortsole manufacturers are taking over 
prime time TV slots, the Amiga wilJ have little presence outside its own 
specialJsl press. 

Anderson argued, however, thai allowances had been made towards dlstribu- 
iws to he[p them with cost, and he expects theni lo shout about the Amiga in 
rtieir own adverts. Giiles Bourdin also pointed out that Amiga Technologies' 
prffwnce at the IFA fair in Berlin showed a worthwhile marketing investment. 

What is encouraging Is that almost 50 per cent of the &0,000 Amigas allocated 
tor the UK this year have aJ ready been sold. Amiga Technologies are confident 
lliey'll sell their entire stock of Amigas produced this year.

What w^s surprising, however, wem a 
number of statements thai contradicted 
details everyone thought were settled 
some weeks ago. It appears, contrary to 
what Tyschtsehenko told Amiga 
Computing last month, that the Amiga will 
be dis-tributed througti Escom shops after 
all - a revelation thai came as a reitef to 
those conoemedi about the Amiga's high 
street presence this Christmas. 

U-TURN 

Previously, Tysch|$chenko had 
believed that the Escom staff woutd be 
too gieaned towards PC and insutfidenily 
educated about thie Amigas to sell them 
successfully. The aboui face, however, 
seems to be based on the fact that th8 
employees in the UK shops will all have 
had ewperience ol seJIing Amigas before 
the Rumhelows buyout, 

CD32 owners on the verge ot hara-kiri 
were given pause for thought as well- 
While the failure to outline any plains pre- 
viously had led many la assume the 
console was to be consigned to the dust- 
bin of computer could-have-beens, 
Tyschtsehenko gave it a more optimistic 
prognosis. 

"We have tiad tremendous problems 
obtaining DRAMs, so we decided not to 
pfcduce the CD32 this year," he offered.

The words 'press conference' might conjure up the 
vision ol large halis packed with hordes of scribbling 
hacks, places where quickfire questioning is 
accompanied by a barrage of flickering 
flashlights from the assembled press 
photographers. You will not be sur 
prised to hear that this affair was 
somewhat more - shall we say - 
subdued, 

Ironically. Amiga press members 
thernsetves were rather thin on the 
ground, with staff from the games 
magazines conspicuous by their 
absence. It would appear thai they, at 
least, are rather sceptical about Ihe

gave voice to the sort of cynicism I suppose is 
expected from journalisis on these occasions. 
Having been ushered into a small but ^iveii 
filled room, the tone for the event was set 
early on. in his openirig words, Petro 
Tyschtsehenko excused the absence of 
Manfred Schmitt, explaining thai the 
Escom MD was striking a deal in 
America, somewhere - pertiaps he was 
negotiating a lake-over ol Mkirosoft, he 
'fcMe<i- It was the first sign that the tan- 
ference was more about confidence ihan

The remaining 'serious' edrtonal from ^„^^^ uutAmigMn Buccmtt speeches were over. Perhaps it had n<j! 
Amiga Conputing, Format, Shopper, CU helped that the first half of the confer- 

Amiga and JAM magazines assembled at the ence was as much about Escom's PC line and PC 

Sheraton hotel, Heathrow, conversed with strained games on the I -glasses as it was about Amigas. 



"But you can be sure we will produce it 
ne^xi year. This year we have too many 
problems with our two main products." 

This year though, the only other new 
products dud from Amiga Technologies

report j and a multiscan monitor that is 
almost certainly going to be the 14" 
Microvitec 1438 - Ihough 15' and 17" 
models are planned for next year. 

Neither the speech made by Petro 
Tyschtsehenko. or John Smith, however, 
confronted many of ihe doubts that had 
been lurking at the back of most enthusi- 
asts' minds, and it was only in the ques- 
tion and answer session thai the knottier 
issues were addressed. Pricing was per- 
haps the most commeniy voiced worry, 

CLEAR AIMS 

The £1000 ex VAT cost tor 4000Ts 
was the first target, and with faster, fully 
killed PCs available ^t around El 000. 
Amiga Tectinoiogies had to explain 
where they thought their high-end 
maohine's market lay, "I think one of the 
problems in Ihe past is that the Amiga 
has been badged as if it will do every- 
thing for everyone," argued Anderson. 
"We are clearly aiming the 4000T towards 
the mullimedia market. Even though 



technology has moved on a bit, Ihe 
Amiga is still the best machine out iheir 
because of its multitasking capabilifei 
among other things, lor multimedia,' 

The multimedia strategy itself was late 
brought into question, however, Escc^ 
themselves are selling cheap, ready-t;.- 
run PCs with in-buill sound cards an.: 
speakers. The terms PC and myftirrtKiir 
are almost synonomous in the eyes o' 
the general public, and even the Amiga 
flagship software. Scala, is now auaiiati!; 
for the rival platfomn. 

Despite being pleased by their P'L 
product. Scala UK's Barry Thurstc 
fought back against the idea ihai if-- 
Amiga was overpriced and be hind ft- 
times. 'You still have to pul an awiui i. 
of expansion into a PC to get it up to \h 
efforliess performance level the Amit;. 
has for multimedia," he argued. "So yoi 
basic cost might be OK, but your adur. 
overall cosi will be much higher. Thsl 
particularly irue," he continued, "viht 
you're talking about distributing inforrrii 
lion to television. The cost of putting •

expensive." 

The argument for the AtzaCi 
strengths seemed more compaiting, iKm.

Amiga Technologies is run largeiy by ex- 
Commodore people, and at one point the panei 
faced the same sort of criticism over markeling strat- 
egy that was ieveiied al the old com- 
pany After all, it was argued, ther^ 
5«em$<l to be little meirt«eting to raise 
I he Amiga's profile, and not a lot in 
the way of mew prciducl$ i^ither. 
'Convince us otherwise !" one person 
demanded in an increasingly heated 
atrTK^sph^ra. 

Ir response, Anderson conlested 
ttial the massive adverlising cam- 
patgns Iron Microsoft and the 
Japantae giants would just lead lo 
urifus-ion for the public, jind added a 
criticism cf his own against magazine 
putrtishers. "I ttiink that one of the mis- 
demeanours I hat most mags have 
ddne to the dgilriment of our industry is to confuse 
tlie end users big dma," he retaliated. "They don't

result is that they're still waiting. "Amterson's subse- 
quent plea for Amiga Technologies ^nd the speeial- 
i$t press to work together tor a successful relauncti 
did little to calm things down. The Future 
Publishing camp accused Anderson of 
snubbing Amiga magsiines by giving infor- 
mation to CTW first. There I hen ensued an 
argument about whro phoned who first, how 
many messages were teft on whose 
answering machines, and so on, until dis- 
cussion of t^e Amiga seemed in danger of 
being lost in personal disputes. 

Fortunately, the proceedings soon 
returned to more of an even keel, bul a cer- 
tain amount of frustration remained at 
Amiga Technologies' failure to dispel some 
widely held doubts, Perhaps. I hough, the 
press were exipecting too much from the 
company in the time Ihey'd had to ramp 
producdon up. "We know there is a lot more to be 
done," Gilles Sourdin acknowledged after the con- 
ference had been wound up, 





TfteMrchvnko, gampral manager. ' W* will

:-5lb from £299 super consoles and low 
'need PCs, but there was a strong t>elief 
■natthe A1200 could win the middle 
•^roiind as an eritry-level computer. 

As far as Ihe PC was concerned, John 
Smith' argued, not everyone could afford 
■"1000 even if they wanted one. 
"yschtschenko also pointed out thai PCs 
.vereaboul lo rise radically In phce due lo 
!ha fact that Windows 95 requi<red a 



minimum of 8Wb of notoriously 
expensive RAM. 

A lot of people originally bought I heir 
Amigas to play games, tiut with Sony's 
Playstation about to hit the shops, didn't 
they fear for the A12O0's fortunes in the 
Christmas season? John Smith was 
unperturbed over this issue. 

"I think the kind of produotivily soft- 
ware in the pack we were delivering al 
the end of Commodore's time showed 
the direction in which we were already 
moving," he said. "Basically, I Ihink lots 
of A5OI3/600 users want to move over to 
the 1200 - they now have computer 
eKperienee and they want productivity 
stuff. They know the Amiga is far more 
than just a games rmachine, so we will 
certainly push things towards the 
productivity side." 

Anderson added ihai It would attract 
people who were sick ol the console's 
limitations as we)(, "Most parents want 
their kids lo have more Itian one option. 
With a console you either play games or 
do nothing. I don't think we're directly 
squaring up to Itie Japanese here." 



[Tlahe or brcah 



Ttie Amiga's relaunch is imminent, but its long-term survival is less certain, 
Amiga Tectinologies are confldenl of being able to sell the Amigas allocated for 
Ihe UK niar1*et this Christmas; if they at6 to prevent it from slipping back into 
otillvion, however, upgraded machines with bundled CD drives must be 
accompanied by serious Investment in advertising, at%d tt>e sooner the better. 

if it was a pity thai the conference led to some angry exchanges between the 
press nnd the panel, it was al least a testament lo how passionately everyone 
assembled wanted the Amiga to be reborn. And In raising the spectre of future 
challenges, it's easy to forget what Amiga Technologies have achieved in get- 
ting the computer bach into the shops In time tor Chr jstmas. Tyschlschenko put 
It succinctly: 

"To ramp production up in Ihree months is very difficult. I can tell you I've 
n-ever worked so hard in al( my life to be successful for the Amiga as I have in 
Ihe last three monlha.'^' 



Friends in t\igti 
pla[e5 

The day after announcing the 
relaunch to the press. Amiga 
Technoiogies presented Us illC 
strategy at a developer's 
conference. Amiga Computing 
contacted Hi-sofi, makers of the 
Squirrel interface, to find out their 
reaction to the key issues. 

MQ David Link's views on the 
pricing were generally positive, 
"Taken as a whole package, the 
bundle offers tremendous value 
for money,"' he said. Yes we 
, would all like to see a stand- 
alone A1200 at a lower price. 
But I can understand Amiga 
TechnolojHeS' need to put for- 
ward A1200S al a price that 
allows them to goon support" 
Ing the Amiga. Ttiey've done 
th»t by putting forward a VBtW 
attractive soflwrire bundle. ' ' 
Lfnk did add. however, that 
he tt^oughl the A4000 was over- 
priced and hoped it would come 
down in cost once Amiga 
Technologies had recovered 
some of its ex pen d itu re- '\ 

UNCONCERNED . 

As. far as the taclu^ pre- 
Chrislmae advertising was con- 
cerned. Link was unconcerned. 
Knowing our customers as we 
do," he commented, 'there s a 
l.nrgc pent up demand for A 1200s 
iind A4000S in the market that will 
be reached through the individual 
retailers, People lika us E^v^inge- 
lise the machine, and that's as 
qood as eny sidveftising given the 
number ol mschines availaiite 
i)efore Christmas," 

Link was also impressed by 
Amiga Technologies' marketing 
push, although he accepted that 
Amiga users wanted CO interac- 
tive titles as well as authoring 
systems. "Of course we want 
products like Encarta and 
Cinemania," he said. "&ut that's 
up to individual publishers to bite 
Ihe bullet, I think ihe number of 
CO drives sold with the Squirrel 
shows the serious potential for 
any publisher to move in on that 
market, ' 

Like Hi-Soft itself, we asked? 
Link responded posltivetyr "If 
anybody wanted to approach us 
with tialf an idea, or an authoring 
system, or a title they wanted 
publishing, we would almost 
positively seriously can<;i(Jer It " 

Not everyonewas so positive, 
however, Chris Wiles, MD of 
Active Sofiware, felt the price 
even tor At20Q was set loo high.

REVIEW 



I-hO 



here has atways beefi a certain 
snobbery about SCSI, H one per- 
son has a SCSI hard drive and 
the other an IDE then the SCSI owner 
could atways feel sup&rior. and can happily 
scoff al their friends inadequacies, 

Generally, SCSI hard drives aire consid- 
ered to be superior in performance than 
IDE, even though you do have to pay for 
the privilege, Apan from the pertormanoa 
advanlage. a SCSI interface allows you to 
connect up to seven peripherals onto the 
SCSI chain. This is the greatest advantage 
over IDE as they only allow you to connect 
two IDE hard drives, and you usually have 
to faft about with jumpers, making: one a 
master drive and the other a slave drive, 
which normally involves ringing up the 
manufactures and getting the correcl 
delaiiS- 

Currently. if you want 10 add a SCSI 
interlace to your A1200 your oplions are 
quite limited. You lan either buy one of the 
trapdoor accelerators that also have a 
SCSI option, or get a Squirrel. The (IrsI is 
fairly expensive and the last ties up your 
PCMCIA slot 

A tew years ago that would have meant 
little, as there were no PCIvlCIA peripher- 
als arourvd, but more and more are starting 
10 appear, and for certain people, leaving 
frie slot tree might be a necessity. 

Installation ol the DataFlyer is necessar- 
ily more complex than the Squirrel, 
because it plugs into the IDE slot of your 
computer. Firstly, you have to place a 
small ptastic square under where the 
DataFlyer will go. This is required to stop 
the DataFlyer's cincuit board from shorting 
out on the Amiga's metal shiekJ, Vou then 
plug the board into the IDE port. 

If you have a hard drive alreaiiy, you will 
need to frwve it badt about a ceniimelfe to 
allow me leads to fit. This is done by 
unscrewing Ihe drive from its tray and then, 
using a rubber t3ung, the drive is wedged 
back into the tray in its new position. This 
might not sound very secure but the drive 
really is fixed in position ver^ firmly. 

All that remains is to feed a ribbon cable 
from the DataFlyer round lo that hole at the 
baci( of your AlECW - the one you never 
knew a use for. By then screwing a sup- 
plied metal plate into place, and then 
screwing the connector info this, you end 
up with a brand spar.kir>g n«w SCSI port at 
the back of your Amiga. This just leaves 



Pros and cons 





the soilware to install, which is extremely 
simple. You boot up your computer with 
whichever partition or disk you want Ihe 
dnver installed on. and the install software 
will copy Ihe correct device driver and add 
a couple o! lines to the startup-sequence. 
The nestt lime you boot up, .any SCSI hand 
drives attached will be automatically 
recognised. If you want to use a CD 
drive, you will also need to gel hold of 
the AmiCDhandler software. This w" 

install the correcl CD handler and 

DosDriver for use with the 

DataFlyer and is very simple to 

install, using the standard 

Amiga Installer 
Fitting the DataFlyer 

was a very simple process 

with good clear insinjctions 

in the manual, Taking you 

through earti step of the way, 

in total it took about 1 5 minutes 

to fit. f^tost of that time was taken 

up with opening up and closing the 

Amiga- 

RECOGNITION 

Once the software is installed, any hard 
drives you attach are automaticalty recog- 
nised and mounted - the transfer rate 
being only a Jittle slower than the squirrel. 
The main problem here is that the IDE 
mteri^ace is dependant on the CPU, so the= 
faster your computer, the faster the 
DataFlyer will tie. 

One of the drawbacks from using the 
IDE port is that the first two SCSI devices 
are set aside for IDE hard drives, with 
these being treated as SCSI hard drifues. 
This has the etfecl that you will only be 
able to attach five other external devices. 
For most people this should not pose any 
pfoblems, /^'Af 



The mdin competition for the DataFlyer is the Squin-el, so any A1200 owner wanting a 
SCSI interface will want lo consider the pros and cons of both. As a SCSI interface the 
DataFlyer works well, It is reasonably price^i. has the advantage of leaving the PCM- 
CIA slot tree, and you end up with a neat new SCSI interface at the back ot your 

A12D0, 

The main draw back with the DataFlyer is that some people may be pul off with the 
Installation and also, ri you are wanting to connect a CD you can get the Squirrel as a 
complele package. If you are wanting lo use Ihe DataFlyer with a CO, Siren can 
supply all the neces&ary leads and the AmiCDhandler software. 

If you are not put ofl by the thought of having lo remove the top of your At 200, then 
Ihe DataFlyer is a neater solution to getting a SCSI interface.

. fter niiich hypa and hodow 
promises- It appeacs there's 
about as much chance of a 
new or improved Amiga appearing 
twfore Christmas as yours truly sprout- 
ing an eatra onfice. At best, we can 
expect s fresh production run of the 
existirtg range with perhaps the added 
glamour of the new Amiga 
Technologies logo- Not what you d call 
inspiring news for serious Amiga 
users. 

Fortunately. Ihere Js a ray of hope 
thanks to the Amiga's most prolific 
third-party supporter. Even through the 
Amiga s darkest hour, MacroSyaierm 
have continued to develop their 
impfessive range of add-ons, which 
have now evolved into a completely 
new machine with Amiga technology at 
its heart. 

Courtesy ai their existing hardware, 
MacroSystem already have all the prirv 
clpie elements of a ground-breaking 
computer, Thai^ks to Retina, which in 
the Draco 5 case ships with 4Mb of 
RAM and CybecVision drivers as stan- 
dard, they can detiwer super fastest 24- 
bit graphics. Add to that stereo ifi-blt 
audio via Toccata and ttie digital video 
skills of Vtah Motion and you arrive at 
a computing potential the PC and Mac 
can only dream off- 

What s missing is, of course, an 
operating system, and in that particular 
area the Amiga is sliU revered. With 
Windows 95 barely knocking on the 
door of Workbench 1,3 and the incredi- 
bEy expense and self indulgent OS 0l 
the Mac, a licensed Amiga OS is tll8 
obvious choice lor serious audJo/video 
and CG productions. 

GREAT CHOICE 

With it$ combination Of 10-years 
multitasking experience, a natural affinr 
ity with video, an OS which only 
requires one eighth Of the resources 
required by a PC to perform ttw s^||^ 
task, the Amiga 05 is the obvioti* 
choice lor the new Microsystem** 
machirve. 

Although sound and vision are taken 
care of, there's the small matter of the 
CPU, not to mGHtion the other t/0 
essentials that go.to make up a modern 
computer, fn the case ol the Dreco. this 
is taken care of via a Draco direct' 
plug-in CPU c»rd and I/O combo con- 
sisting of an 060 with 8 SCSI 11 ton- 
troller. space for up to 64Mta Of RAM 
via standard simms, connections for 
mouse, serial, parallel ports and of 
course an HD floppy. 

Add to that ftn array of QuickLogic 
chips for Kickstart and a few other 
essentials and you aJTive at the world s 
first Amiga on a card - with one major 
difference. At first glance, the Draco's 
graphical user interlace - or GUI - 
looks every inch an Amigia. but ttwre is 
one m3>or difference The Draco 6O0& 
not have the AGA. or in fact any part of 
the Amtga 5 custom chipset, To prove 



the point, a quick glance at the menu 
bar reveals not ZiVlh, but 4Mb of chip 
memory - alias Retina on-ljoard Add to 
that the lack of the AG* chipset and 
you arrive at the Draco alternative. 
Admittedly, this may sound like a ter- 
minal problem, but for 
those using the 
Amiga as a pro- 1 

duction toot 
- espe- 
cial- 




ly video - the AGA Chipset is often 
more of a hindrance than anything 

else- 

However, no AGA obviously does 
preclude certain applications, from the 
Draco repertoire, notatjies including 
Dpaint, Brilliance and most importarn 
of all Seals. In short, software that 
insists on the AGA chipset hy default,

COMPATIBILITY 

Another huge plus For ttie Draco i$ Its

comes to MacroSy stems' hardware it's 
entirely accierate, Obviously, there's a 
lot of people out there who've already 
invested a fair amount of hard earned 
cash on Toccatas, VLab Motion cards 
and Retina's, Ttie good news is that all 
of the above will work perfectly well in 
the Draco. As a consequence, 
MacroSystem will b© offering a mix and

have elements ot the Draco as part of 
the existing systems. 

However, it must be said there are 



ocimhifie lorces wittiin the MovieSbop/Draco envi-

advantages for those witling to invest m 
'Draco diieci' hardware, At preseni, the 
Retina is the only card in Ihe collection 



which tias undergone the 
conversion - however VLab Motion is 
close beliind. 

A standard Zorro II VLM transfers 
roughly 1Mb a second taster on Ihe 
Draco, courtesy ol a fa$i Zorro II soft- 
ware patch. In addition, the MovieShop 
code has also been optimised. 



The Alpha aption 




Okay, you've heard the preamble concerning the key 
elements in the system, but what's ii ail in aid of? In 
short, the Draco Is a one-&top graphics, digital ■(rideo 
and audio solution which will become one of the 
fastest rendofing and digital vicfeo effects systems on 
any desktop. 

The aforementioned Dec Alpha co-processor could 
welf prove to be the r^al key lo the Draco's success in 
the Song term - with the first and most obvious 
beneficiary bmng Ihe MovieShop software. 

Not surprisingly, an expansion slot already awaits 
a new co-processor which features ihe fastest chip 
in the Dec Alpha range, and currently holds the 
record for the world's lastest micro-proc&ssor deliv- 
ering an astonishing 450 mips - which translates 
Into 10 times the speed of an SOMhz 060, The 
end result in MovieShop's case is real-time DVEs in 
software. 

At present, the generation ol wipes, fades and spe- 
cial effects can be a. fairiy lengthy process, especially 



Timelines and SFH 



When the real time grabting and importing 
Is complete, and th& assonied clips have 
been thmmed, edited, and appended, the 
next slep is to drop them into the Timeline 
and add the all -important special effects 
eixl additional audio. 

The actual process of buiWirjg (he Movie 
is entirely non-destmctive. In reality it simply 
offers a means of layering and combining 
existing audio and video into a new 
sequence. The end result of aEI this is user- 
defined sequencing of all the existing 
scenes - aided by visual and audio eflecis. 
I( a new dip overlaps an ejcistmg element a 
fade operator could be dropped between 
tf>e overlap to produce a digilal: cross-lade. 

This ability to mix and process multiple 
sequences points to another unique feature 
of VLM, namely its ability to operate as a 
digital A/B roll environment with a buill-ln 
digital effects processor, Admittedly, this is 
by no means a real-time process, because 
once the scenes are arranged, and the 



on more complex DVEs.. However, with the arrival of 
the co-pro, the vasi majority of MovieShop SFXs will 
be real time, while the more complex flying, cubes and 
the like will he generated in near real time. 

However, MovieShop need not be the only soft- 
ware to cash in on the power of the Dec Alpha, 
MacroSystem will be providing a dedicated compiler 
for anyone wishing to re-compile their software for the 
Draco co-pro - obvious chorees being Lightwave, 
Real 3D and the like. 

In the past, the attempts at partial RISC solution on 
the Amiga OS has fallen at the first hurdle. 
Nevertheless, the MacroSystems' example does 
prove that a RISC -based accelerations system, an 
060. and the Amiga's existing OS can work - Amiga 
Technologies please take note. 

But unlike its predecessors, the Draco will have the 
advantage of a solid platform with a user base whose 
otwrtership of the machine In itself proves dedication 
to the DV and computer graphic cause. 



operators in position. MovieShop still has 
(0 set about processing the viideo 
sequence, transitions and effects specified 
within the Timelme, 

Fortunately, this is all done automati- 
cally, but it nevertheless takes time as the 
process is done entirely via software - in a 
similar way in which AOPrg and ImageFX 
apply effects to single images. Needless to 
say, Draco's 060 is a real bonus at this 
stage- 
As you've probably guessed, audio is 
also computed in a similar manner. If. lor 
example, you've added a backing track, or 
adjusted the envelope within an ■existing 
AV soundtrack, a separate computing pass 
IS needed to apply the changes. 
Fortunately, this process usually takes only 
a matter of seconds. 

Af though the ff^E process may sound 
daunting, after a little pradise it becomes 
second nature. Beginners are catered for 
via an easy mode in addition to the more 
complex RPN approach - which can 
process an almost unlimited number of 
sequences alongside multiple layered 
special effects. 



especially in relation to decoding ano 
encoding lor the ever growing band ol 
DVEs, 

Running the standard VLM card, the 
Draco can attain, and more importanll',' 
maintain, 90 per cent Jpeg compres- 
sion, which equates to BetaCam SP 
and above. In other words, image qual- 
ity on a par with the DPS Persona 
Animation f=lecord©r - olherwis.e known 
as the PAR card. 

However, with the arrival of the 
"Draco direct" version, VLM compres- 
sion will no longer he a consideration 
With transfer speeds up to three times 
faster than Zorro 111 the "Draco direct' 
VLM will easily encode real-time ful 
frame video without using any compres- 
sion whatsoever. And belter slill DVt 
decoding and encoding will be done via 
hardware - making for much faster DVE 



lUhat'5 in the ban 



* 



As mentioned earlier, mix and rnatch 
configurations are available for those 
who already have elements of the 
system. However, assuming you're 
starting from scratch, the basic DV 
system consists ot the following: Th# 
Vlab Motion, Toccata. Retina and lt» 
MO CPU and I/O combo. 

On the storage side you start off 
with an hD disk drive. The only limrts- 
tion of which is that the drive is in l^cl 
a PC HD flop[}y. As a consequence, it 
ectually writes Am^lga format floppies 
at roughly half the normal speed. 

In addition to th« Moopy, the Draw 
also ships with a quad-speed CD- 
ROM plus 4Mb of RAM as standard. 
To complement the CD-ROM, 
MacroSystem will also be sup;0ylng,B 
dedicated CD which Uovmn 
Workbench end installs atl ttie accom' 
panying software and utitities rkaeded 
to manage the system. 

Even mor« interesting is a plan ta 
incorporate Shape Shifter as a Stain- 
dard part of the Draco software suite. 
For those unfamiliar witht tKe Shape 
Shifter, it allows you to define either a 
file or a partition as a Macintosh, 

Add Mac system software and yOu 
effectively have a full blown Mac run- 
ning on your Amiga, or in this case a 
Draco, However. In order to accom- 
plish the seemingly unthinkable you 
do need a Mac ROM stored as a fllfr 
on your machine Obviously, simply 
ripping a ROM image out of a Mac a 
highly Illegal. As a consequence, an 
official deal with Apple is essHnllfll. 
MacroSystem are confident that cur- 
rent negotiations will end in the all- 
impqrtant handshake. And if aO, 
Draco Dwrtefs will have access to tha 
best of both the Amiga and the Mac,

user to deiine tvow much space lo use

Thanks to such a high ijegree of 
Image quality, Draco will easily hold lis 
own in the btoaifcasl market, even on a 
Zorro II VLftfl - a faclOr which is backeni 
up by a drrect linl< to SetaCam SP 
equipment and otfief broadcast quality 
hardwars. This is thanJ^s to an optional 
YUV componenil module which simply 
slots onto the hoard. 

The only other card that really bene- 
fits from a 'Draco direct' cor^nectpon is 
the Retirta and as that's already alive 
and kicking, the only other element Is 
Itie Toccata, However, il remains lo be 
seen if MacroSystem will bother with a 
'Draco direct' version as the existing 
version already works al and above CD 
quality as standard. 

Up and (oming 

Needless to say the launch of the Deo 

Alpha co-processor is a ma|of event for the 
elite. However for mere mortals, in vest- 
ment in a co-pro will hinge on "Jie arrival of 
re-compiled versions of LightWave and 
other power appHcations specifically for the 
Draco. 

In addition to the various brts tliat have 
already had a mention, there is one more 
immmeni upgrade waiting in the wings, 
which like the co-pro is due to coincide 
with the official Autumn launch of Ihe 
Draco. The mystery add-on is in fact a new 
64-tiit graphics card which will provide full 
:i colour preview actually on the 
MovieShop contfd screen. Better stilt, the 
card will also genaraie a gentockabte sig- 
nal. Add both of the above to a 64-bit bus 
and yau"re looking al a btislermgiy fast 
card that .should add the finishing touch to 
the Draco. 



Hnd finaljij 



Aside (rom the system: performance, the 
price tag itself is bound to attract many 
a serious Amiga fan, with the basic 
Draco reiailirtg* cheaper than an Amiga 
4000 runnrog an 060 accelerator. Not 
bad for a fully-featured digital video box 
with tbe potential for full off-line editing. 
CD quality audio, broadcast quality digi- 
tal video effects, and much more 
besides. 

Look at the opposition tram (tie likes 
of Quantel's Paintbox and various 
Mac systems and you'll discover the 
Draco's asking price is tiny in compari- 
son. Tt>e onfy other questkMi, especially 
in relation to newcomers, is ease of 
use. 

Although generally no more daunting 
than the average Amiga, there is one 
aspect of the MovieShop environment 
that could see some Improvement, 
namely the application of DVEs, To 
actiieve DVEs MovieShop employs a 
Reverse Polish Notation system lo 
stack and process DVEs on an almost 
unlimited collection of video clips simul- 
taneousfy. For ttie novice, it must be 
said Hie process can present something 
of a hurdle. Il would be nice if 
MacroSystom implemented a GUI in the 
style of IWuiliLayer specifically for DVE 
design. 

As for the system as a whole, there 
are no comptainis whatsoever. The beta 
version tested arrived wilti all the neces- 
sary bits separate from the tower, wrth

The Amiga Users of CaJgary (AMUC) held a suc-

AmiTrix was showing AmigaLlrik, the floppy-port

SCSI-570, the full SCSI interfaces for the CDW and

T^s show wound down with a pane) discussion 



made up ol Brant Coghlan of AmiTrtx, Dale Larson. 
Dave Haynie. Sieve Vetzal and Steve Cockweli from 
Wonder, and myself. II crystallised the mood of the 
show, which was one of 'strong concern.' Amiga 
users are looking for fast action and inspiring deci- 
sions, and to dale have not been getting what 
they're io^jking for. 

Also discussed was what the panel would like to 
see for future development of the Amiga line. 
PowerPC was a virluatly unanimous choice. As 
Dave HaynJe put it: "it will be the only RISC chip with 
a chance to be priced as a commodity item." 

Despite attendance m the hundreds (registered 
attendance did not break 400, according to reports), 
the exhibilofs were pleased and the Ofiganisers were 
too tired to be concerned. Show admittance was 
free, and many people came and went witfiout 
cheeking in. 

Everyone weni home happy, and rnosi people 
were just glad to t>e in an environment with so much 
Amiga enthusiasm and energy. 



somewhere else to play, so to speak. 

Upon release of ImageFX 2,0, hfova 
found their own independent distribution 
ctianneis rather itian publishing through 
GVP, as they had done in the past. 

Many areas of North America have 
seen their deaterships shrink, consolidate, 
or disappear altogether. Indeed. I am con- 
slantiy reminded that fVlexioo City, the 
world's largest metropolis, has only one 
Amiga dealership. What. then, fuefs 
Wonder Computers, a dealership chain 
that has grown from one store to five in 
the past tew years, has instituted a corpo- 
ral e division (or infrastructure manage- 
ment and product distribution, and recent- 
ly added a software development team lo 
Hs repertoire? 

Based in Ottawa, Canada, with stores 
in Ottawa. Toronto, London. Montreal, 
and Vancouver, the answer seems to lie 
in dedication and making the right deci- 
sions in the' right places, as well as having, 
an impressive enough presence to instil 
confidence in the user base. 

Each of Wonder's five stores is Amiga-

President Christopher Aldi repEied simply;

h short, thefe are a lot of questions in the Norliti 
American market and no easy an»were. The 
decisiofk to spend no marketing dollars this year 
was a difficuU one to accept for many. While the 
ergument is certainly true that this is not the 
strongest market historically for tfie Amiga, the 
potential-and existlng-customer base cannot be 
ignored. 

At this point, sitting back, sipping that cup of 
coffee you just bought and riding out the situa- 
lion Is not a bad idea. Gitles Bourdin o4 Amiga 
Technologies PR lias asked North Americans to 
ssf>d him articles mentioning the Amiga in mafor 



press pubtications. Former engineers such as 
Dale Larson have interviewed with ISE. the new 
subcontractor for Amiga engineering, TTie ques- 
tions are not easy, but the answers, stowly, are 
forthcoming. 

And even more importantly, the deafer and 
[levelopment support is still here. Yes. there is 
no more GVP to flagship tfte Amiga on ttiis con- 
tinent. But the community isurvives- The users, 
developers and dealers are doing as much as 
they can. as evidenced by their continuing dedt- 
cation and Support. It is. now Amiga 
Technologies' market to make or break.

IntemaHonal, wtio has repeatedly tried lo 

secufo an agreement for disinbution, says 
he is "anxiously awaiting Ihe release of the 
Arriga Tetfinologtes line of macliines in

not spend a dollar on North American mar- 
keting in 1995, and al the recent UK press 
and dealer conference Ihey said ihey were 
interested in a 'partner' rattier (han a 'dis- 
tributor,' This could dramalicalty change 
ttie way Ihe Amiga is presented to the

even if it means being a part ol thai 
sijpport, £gF 






Just over a month later, on the other side 
Of Canada, Amiga Convenlicm '95 kicked 
off. On paper the two shows don't look all 
that different. Dale Larson and Jason 
Complon l>ooked as speakers. Wonder 
Computers to arwhor the dealer floor. Two 
days, ending in a panel discussion. But just 
as every cit'/ has its own itavour, every 
Amiga show has its own lasting 
impressions. 

For one, AC "95 took a dilferent approach to th& off-floor enlerlaJnmenI, While 
AmiJAIW was very heavy on speeches and presentations, ijooking two diflerenl i 
rooms ItifOugh most hours of the day, AC had onty one presentation room, which tiad j 
demo, music, and graphics competitions in addition to the booked speakers. Ttwj 
organisers plan lo make Itie winning en|ri&s freely available on Aminet FTP. 

On the floor, the dealer presence was more noticeable, pertiaps because they | 
were cramped more closely together - a testament to the number that were bookeo • 
Dealers Oby's Amiga Computing Shop, GfxBase, and National Amiga were on hano , 
With products to sell. Pre'Speci Technologies had their own display of productsf 
including the f^^uitlFace K and IV cards, which they now manufacture on license from' 
bsc, the original development company, AsimWare were on hand with their! 
AsimCDFS CD-ROM filesystem, complete with CD32 emulation, which presideni 
Paul Beeves took delight in demonstrating by playing hours of Super Stardust CD32. , 
While he did not man a dealer table for long, Hal Greenlee had flyers on hand and 
on display for itie Mlcronik 4000 Tower, a custom Amiga 4000 tower system maru- 
factured in Germany wiih a special daughtertigard offenng expanded slots fof the 
machine. As mentioned, Wonder Computers had a large display of software and 
hardware at their tables, including enhanced New ihlorizons software. Rick -Sulpiiia, 
distributor of Ihe MacroSystem Germany product line in Canada, had the V-lat 
(VIotion set up for impressive displays of real-lime non-linear editing. 
Unfortunately, he did not have the Draco 060-based AmLga-compatil?l9 
non-!inear ediling computer with him, {See the exclusive review of Ihe 
Draco in ih!s iss-ue - ed,) 

Most dealers kept a cheery disposition as the 1 2-hour days 

■ -inched on. Oby's sold every copy of Gloom they brought (greatly 

.io5i5ied by the fact that they had a two-player networked, display set 

up for attend&es to play), and National Amiga coveied the entire cost 

of ttie trip the lirst day, 

Daie Larson, who now makes his living as President of Intangible 

Assets IVlanufacturing, gave his presentation on networtting Amigas ■ 

logical choice, since his company produces Amiga Envoy 2.0 and (he book 

Connect Your Amiga!, as well as publishing Dave Haynie's Deathbed Vigi 

documentary and OiskSalv utility, 

Al yackey of iVlegaBai! fame gave a stunning art demonstration on Digiia! 

Creations' Brilliance paint program. I made the mistake of leaving the room when a 

rough sketch was on the screen, and when I returned iwo minutes later, a full-coflour 

cartoon drawing greeted me. 

My speech was a consolidated version of the two speeches on emulation I gave at 
AmiJAM. Ttie crowd indulged my strange desires to play old ComnK>dare 64 garnes 
on Amsga screens. 

The panel discussion dosed the event with Dale Larson, Peter Cherna (also late ot 
Commodore and rtow employed on PC development al Scala), Greg Scott, presideni 
of National Amiga, and myself, fylosl of the audience's nin^^tion^s were aimed at the 
former Commodore lolk, feeling out 
their theories for future develop- 
ment and the potential for (he 
Amiga in the marketplace. 

Paid attendance was 
roughly that ol the registered 
attendance al AmiJAM, 
Those that came had 
essentially the same 
questions and concerns 
as Ihe first time around - 
when will we see new 
products? When will we be sup- 
ported? When will we be con- 
vinced Itiat this isn't Commodore 
all over again?

^■^C^A ypical - Commodore create s 

^FIJp way lor a program to b-e able 

Wm ^^ to load any type of file type it 

n«ed$ la, and no one us&s W- What is 

needed is a program Ihal will sit in 

between the datatypes and the appltca- 

■ Sfan program, quietly converting any 
Vi\6i iltiat are loaded. 

Daiachrome is meant to do exactly 
!tiat. Once activated il will intercept any 
toad request, see if the tile type being 
Keded is a supported datatype, and if il 
is. Datachrome will convert ttie tile lo a 
normal IFF version oF ttiat file which is 
wtiat your program actuaily ends up 

• loading, 
In vi& this can cause problems. 
Firstly. yoLi mu$t make sure you remove 
Itie icon datatype from the 
DevsiDatatype drawer. Otherwise, 
K when you Open a window on 
I Workbenci^, Datachrome will intercept 
I ffvery icon fiie and convert it to an IFF 
lite, Ttiis is then passed to Workbench 
which, not surprisingly, gets very 
■CCHiluserf. 

INTERCEPTING 

Arother side: effect 15 ibal any pro- 
grams that use external graphics will 
cause Datachrome to intercept the load 
calls. If you are using a MUl application 
itiis can gst a little annoying, especially 
as,MUI already supports datatypes. 

The general side effect is thai the 
Datachrome rnessage requester pops 
up unexpectedly, which is both annoy- 
ing and slows the computer down 
somewhat. 

Installation of Datachrorr^e is a 
ttesis. thanks to the standard Amiga 
installer program, and the fact there are 
of5ly four tiles to install. The main

Oatachrom-e executable is only 14k, so 
will fit on a floppy with no problem at all. 
The actual Datachrome program is 
very simple, comprising two tick bo^es 
and two buttons, allowing you to acti- 
vate Datachrome and disable the con- 
version requester. II is possible to 
change the directory where the

temporary converted files are stored. 

This last point is of particular use to hard 
drive Uisers because you can save pre- 
cious memory by using the hard drive to 
store the converted file. 

In general use Datachrome work fine 
- programs like Final Writer. Dpamt and 
Brilliance all work perfectly with 
Datachrome. My main criticism is the 
actual control program - it is far too 
basic. For starters, it should have been 
implemented as a commodiity, altowing 
the usual hot keys to activate and deac- 
tivate Datachrome and to pop the GUI to 
the front. Ii would also be very handy it 
you could have a list of datatypes to 
exclude from conversion, along with a 
[ist of programs Datachrome should 
ignore. 

Due to the problems with Data- 
chrome intercepting alJ the load calls, it is 
not possible to leave it running in the 
background as it just interferes with other 
programs lar too often. Datachrome does 
what it says it should do, the problem is, 
it could do it a little better. /ZW

Dat^iyp^s were introduced with v^r^ion 3.Q q1 the 
Amiga's operating system and are b^sed on the 
object-oriented design methodology, pari of which) 
includes the need for logic normalisation. 

What does that mtsan? I hear some ot you cry. 
W&l! basically, why should every programmer, for 
every program, have lo write their own code to 
handle loading different fife formets. Surely it 
would be far better if on? person wrote the load 
routines and S'llowed any program to access them. 

Datatypes allow programmers to use a single 



interface to load any supported type of file formatr 
some of which may or may not b^ known to (fie 
programmer now or in the future. 

The PNG datatype is a prime example of tfiis. 
Say a program was written last year that supported 
ths loading of picture datatypes. Thai programmer 
could not have possibly known anything about the 
PNG datatype, as it didn't even eitist. Vet with the 
release of the PMG datatype, their program can 
load PNG pictures just as easily as it they were 
IFFs.

Better than Hmiga Ularld 

I am wrfling to tell you how grateful I am to receive your magazine, Amiga ConiipuSng, in 
fuHilrrent of ttie remainder oi my subscription lo Amiga Worid. These have been trying 
days for Amiga owners in ihe United States, with suppliers and publisliers closing shop 
or switching to PC-relaled. prodycts. 

I am deligiited Isy the d,epth of ttie artictes in your magazine, as evidenced by its thick- 
ness in my maiibox. I am also quite pieased thai you publisti a US edition compiete with 
US advertisers, it Is good to see lliat itiere are siili some loyai businesses supporting 
the Amiga communily in the States. 

1 also look forward to upgrading 10 your Gold Subscription. I have tried your 
CoverDisks in the past, but newsstand pnees of foreign periodicals are almost criminal 

here. 
Please keep up the good work, it is not unappreciated here. 

Hobsn J BfuCB. Kansas USA 

I'm pleased that you like our new edition of Amiga Computing. We are proud to 
offer what we consider to be the best advice on new products and old alike, with 
up to the minute news reporting and in-depth tutoriafs, and to paraphrase Al 
J^olson. you ain't read nuthin' ^et! 



Singing our praises 

I must write to congratulate and ihank all 
of you for providing a valuable and infor- 
mative publioation. You do Justice to the 
Amiga by representing ifie qualities of 
the maciiine, nolahly crealivity and 
enthusiasm. Perhaps tfie besi conipli- 
menl I can give is that you really seem to 
enjoy doing what you are doing. 

For instance, if I lake a iooii al your 
August '95 edition, in the Ima^eFX v2.i 
review, ( Immediaiely notice thai you're 
not saying 'IrrageFX does this,..' 
Instead, you're saying "I am happy to use 
ImageFX' or 'This seems odd to me...' or 
'May the you really oughl to look at this' 
etc. See the difference? Of course, 
because that's what makes your maga- 
zine diflereni to the PC magazines I've 
flicked through, They are all 'Mhz' and 
'Windows X.Y.' 

You get this feeJing njnning up your 
spine ihal ihafs al! PCs are, Gut when 
you get your hands on an Amiga, it's like 
'Hey, what shall we do now - music, art? 
It's friendly and it's shaped by you. Ore 
of my Iriends owns a PC and ail the time 
he's saying; "What's it doing now' or it's 
run out of memory' Rlc. 

Please keep up the good work - you 



provide a kind of parenthood over the 
Amiga users. 

Finally, I wouldi ^be pleased to hear any 
comments you might have about the 
future of the Amiga and thai shadowy 
force thai is Eseom. 

C Cousins, WaningtOfi 

I think we do enjoy what we are doing, 
and it's for the reasons you gtve. 
Although we all get frustrated when 
the Amiga crashes, It's normallv 
because we want to carry on hauimg 
fun. As tor Escom, read our piece by 
Gareth Lofthouse on the recent pfess 
conference that took place In 
Heathrow. 



Irue fans 



As an avid Amiga user for eight years it 
is still good to see such enthusiasm from 
other Amiga users. After the Commodore 
fiasco, it's obvious Ihe only peopfe still 
reading magazines and writing software- 
are frye Amiga fang. 

II Escom do deliver the goods as 
promised, then I am sure the Amiga will

see the new logo Escom plan to use on

LITERS 



I aim a inWWWMlWWimiinerly an Amiga World 
sub, I have just received my first issue of your 

magaiine and am very impressed wifri the look 
and eontenl, My question is one thai I am sure is 
sJiared by many other reader$ tmlh here and on 
your side of the ooean. 

I am art A 3000 owner, with lOMb RAM, a 24- 
bit EGS Spectrum board, etc. On reading your 
magazine I felt both lost and confused. Where 
do we A 3000 folks fit irt with the state of the 
Amiga? I originally bought my EGS to tap into 
the power of 24-bit graphics, only to discover 
thai all new games for ttie A400O wort'l even 
work with my machine. Most Amiga magazines 
r«}w seem to feature CoverDisl^s, but even if I 
paid Ihe B5<tra price for these mags, I couldn't 
use the programs on the disks, Will I ever be 
able to run CD32 games or any ol the AGA 
games? 

And whal about PC/Mac compatibility? !f 1 
purchase an Emplant, will my EGS be able to 
run the 256 colour games and programs avail- 
able for itie PC? And will a PovirerPC hoard be 
available for the A3000? How much would it 



Does aniione care' 



cost? Would ft be more economlcat? 

Like many others, I don't have the money to 
simply trash my computer and buy a new 
A4000T, or even an A1200. I have a large 
investment in my current equipment and woutdl 
appreciate an honest answer or speculation on 
how bad off A3000 owners really are. 

As you cover the new and exciting develop- 
ments for the new Escom Amiga, please 
remember ihat there are a lot of us out here 
using A3000S who would like to know Miere we 
stand. We are confused and worried. We would 
appreciate any informatiori you could give us, as 
well as cierifioation in your reviews and articles 
as to what will and won't run on our ma.chines. 

Thank you for your excellent magajEirke and I 
look forward to receiving it everv month. 

B Nicholson, Lake Buena Vista, USA 

Well now, Mr Nicholson, don't tret Quite a 
few of the staff of Amiga Computing am alv> 



A30CM) owners and we don't look worried. | 
Sure, you'll never be able to play AGA 
games, but is that reaily all v<3U bought your 
graphics card far? Ves, you can buy an 
Emptant and run 256 colour Mac games on tt, 
t do (get Maelstrom, by the way), but PQ 
bridgeboards are a littfe thin on the ground flit 
the momenf. 

If you are currently still using Workbench 
IJ.x, which I assume you are because you say 
that you can't run 256 colour programs on 
your machine, then the be&t thing you can do 
IS to immediately upgrade to Workbench 3.1 
as this will let you run a 256 colour 
Workbench on your machirre. 

Finally, on a personal note, I think that the 
A3000 and A3000T were the best machines 
Commodore ever desijgned and they have a 
lot of advantages over A4000s, including a 
built-in SCSI controller and more importantly, 
a fJicker fixer so you can use your Amiga 
with any old VGA monitor and not have to 
worry about not bein^ able to sync down to 
ISkHJL 



going to change them?) 

Needless to say, I lA^ili probably sub- 
scribe soon ertough. 

M Clatwonhy, HBrsimoncsux 

It might ise seen as a shame that 
11 is. only true Amiga fans who 
V9 left to produce software and 
hardware for us. We really r>eed 
ta iiave big companies seeing 
us as a valid platform for devel- 
opment iri Order to bring oyr 
machine back to prominence. All 
\he same, we are getting soma 
great stuff at the moment. Look at 
Photogenios. Twist, DOpus 5, etc. 

As for the new Escom logo, you can 
alUays send os what you think would 
be more appropriate. If we get enough 
entries we might have a competition to 
see which one we think is best. 

luality products 



I r«ad with interest about ihe CD^ROf^ 
Ihat Coichester Zoo are employing and 
would be very interested in buying such 
a quality CD, Imagine how popular the 
Amiga range of computers will become 
nth products such as these - parents 
will not r\eed to take a second mortgage 
10 provide quaiity eduiainmeni for their 
children. 

How thai CD drives are available to 
the mass market, courtesy of Squirrel. I 
liQpB more products of this nature will 
become available. This is what the 
Amiga needs to be taken seriously in the 
realm ol muiiimedia. I also have a demo 
of Insight: Living Body by Optonica, and 
trust that this product Is still due for 
release. 

I also hope thai once the A120Q, 4000 
and CD32s come bacti into production, 
these companies will make AGA CDs 
tiie standard. Without this commitment, 
ttie Amiga will always be held back.

Won-AGA graphics do not carry the 
same impact and quality, and our 
ilies will always pale in compari- 
son to those on the PC, 
Commodore, and Escom (?), 
dropped the non-AGA 
machines for good reason - 
this is the 19S0S. 

This leads onto another 
point - with the vast majority 
of Amiga users who are 
unwilling to update ttieir 
machines, we will never see 
software lhat can match the likes 
of Word or Word Perfect. Our com- 
puters will never be powerful enough. 
And if, for instance. Word did appear on 
the Amiga, how many people would 
buy it? 

For that price you could buy yoursetf 
a second-hand At 200 with a copy of 
Wordworth 2. I only hope lhat (he Amiga 
market wili develop and thai its users 
take note, so I can continue to use and 
support my favourite 'machine without 
settling for second best.

There has been no decision made on 
whether the Colchester Zoo CD will 
become a commercial product yet. 
Ben Vost, the author of the piece, 
says he hopes it does because it is 
really informative and fun to use. The 
Squirrel SCSI controller htas Indeed 
been a phenomenal success, with 
HiSoft selling them as fast as they 
can produce them. 

Put this together with the fact that 
the survey we conducted at the end 
of last year showed that most people 
were Interested in buying a CD-ROM 
drive, and you have a convincing 
argument for more developers to pro- 
duce quality titles Uke the Colchester 
Zoo one. 

But it doesn't Just have to be limif- 
ed to edutainment tities either - It

All that was otherwise wrong was

Could you please tell me where I 
might buy the above disk and menual. 
P Banno^t, Loneton 

I take it from your letter that the hard 
drive was fitted by a third party, 
rather than bought with one when it 
was new. Unfortunately, this was 
always the only way you could 
actually get hold of the official 
Commodore hard drive irislallation 
disk and manual, whether thai situa- 
tion has now changed with Amiga 
Technotogies remains to be seen. 
Vou could try contacting them on 
01623 770036. 

Alternatively, should you have rw)

can try any of the numerous PD 
libraries whose adverta grace our 
pages and ssk them if they have a 
public domain or shareware equiva- 
lent of tlite Commodore installer. You 
will quite likely be offered RDPrep 
which is excellent, althaugh it 
doesn't actually come with a inajiuaL 



would be really nice to see some 
original CD-based games that don't 
rely on CD32 emulation, but that ran 
from Workbench or a CD32. Any 
offers?

overhauled in this manner. 

What about the pictures though?

S kiddy Things 3 is not only very good 
fun, bul it's the sort of gam© you and a 
friend could end up playing for quite 
sometime. 

Admittedly it does not demand a great 
deal of brainpower, but this, is, if any- 
thing, in the game's Favour. And in the 
unlikely event of one of you becoming 
bored with skidding around the tracks at 
high speed, the tiHe screen also fe^atures 
a Simple ping-pong game.

th& compulsory line and shape tools, it is 
possitiie to turn on lines of vertical and 
horizontal reflection symmetry, zoom in 
to work in detail on tricky areas, and fill 
in areas with preset patterns. At (he click 
of a button the screen can also be 
flipped either Jiorizontaliy or verticaily. 

While it's scarcely a rival for Personal 
Paini or BriHiance, or even DPaint, 
Seile's Paint is a competent piece of pro- 
gramming which costs a fraction of iha 
price of comnoercial alternatives. It's also 
got some nice touches. For instance, 
with a little bit of effort il is apparently 
possible lo use the program to perform 
some video titling functions such as 
fancy wipes. 

However the only documents provided 
are some very brief ones added by tho$e 
nice people al SaddleTramps, so a 
degree of experimentation could be nec- 
essary to familiarise yourself with this 
facility. I must confess, 1 coukln't entirely

Old game ideas are constantly being re$<urrecied In 
the world of PD and shareware, which Is not necessar- 
ily a bad thing because rnany golden oldies were a 
good d@al more ©nterlaining than some receni com* 
^merctal offerings. Scavenger Is essentially Astsrolds, 
wifti Ihe slight difference that lo finish a level In [his 
wrsion Ihe player musi collect a certain nurnber of 
gems, rather than Just blow away every asleroEd on 
the screen. 

However, I don't think I've ever played such a dtffi- 
': Cult Asteroids clone. Scavenger is so tough that even 
viiih the maximum pos^sible nine lives i struggled to 
stay alive for more itian a minute or two. 

The strange Ihing Is that despite being almost 
impossibly tricky due to what might kindly be 
described as quite sensitive controls, Scavenger is 
very addicttve. There is also ttie added advantage that 
you're not likely to finish the game In a hurry. 

Yes, the first time you play it you'll be luctty lo last 
ttiree seconds before colliding with a giant floating 

get to grips vinlfi Ihe process in the iimited 
time available, but I'm sure others will. 

It you fancy trying your hand at produc- 
ing some titfing effects or are jusl on the 
look out for a no-frills paint package, 
Belle's Paint is definitely worth checking 
out,

If you're one of those people who always 
forgets important dates such as birthdays 
and anniversaries, ihen RemOate is the 
program tor you. It stores these along 
with special days, diary appointments, 
addresses and telephone numbers, mak- 
ing this one of the mosi comprehensive 
personal organiser programs In the public 
domain. It can print out In a variety of 
ways, Including paper of sizes suitable tor 
use In pocket personal organisers.

chunk of rock. But Ihat won't slop you coming back for 
more. 

The graphics and sound are reasonable enough, 
aithough they are certainly nothing to get excited 
about. The gameplay is a different kettle of fish alto- 
gether though, because arcade action fans will want to 
have this game's babies. 

events In the next few days and inform 
you how many days are left before a cer- 
tain day such as a birthday, allowing you 
to plan accordingly. When entering these 
\ dates in the first place, it Is possible to 

specify how much warning you want, so 
you'll have no excuse for being late with 
that anniversary card. 

RemDate is also capable ot displaying 
key events Ihat happened "On this day in 
history', or In a specified year, and 
producing a quote lor the day. 

There's a small program Included 
called RemDateWB which Is designed to 
sit in your Workbench Startup drawer. 
Then, when you lurn on your machine It 
will remind you of any events coming up, 
RemDateWB can also be configured so 
that it only does this once a day, rather 
than every time you reboot, which was a 
thoughtful inclusion by the author. 

The Interface is attractive and the pro- 
gram is a joy to use. In short, if your life 
is in need of some organisation then 
Rem Date will be the answer to your 
prayers. ' ^^

For practically a year now since the launch of the 
National Lottery last November, there has never 
been a week go by withoul at least one Lottery 
program arriving In the Public Sector mailbag. It 
must be said that the majoritv are much of a 
muchness, and even in the more outstanding 
eases it is very hard to te)3 whether these pro- 
grams wllJ tmprove your chances of winning. 
There have been ptenty of random number 
selectors and even a lotteiy slmotafor. One gen- 
tleman this month sent in the interesting Talk A 
Lottery, designed to literally tell you some ran- 
dom numbers^ which was at least something 
slightly different - but unfortunately it stubbornly 
refused to run for me, making It rather hiard lo try 
out. 
Still, if you fancy •getting hold of a proper 



Strange [urrBficiBS 



predictor, whether out of curiosity or because the 
Lottery has become so imporlanl to you that 
you've nothing better to do of an evening than 
consider endless multi-ticket permutations, then 
here's the Public Sector guide to the three to 
beat...

.. I have an A1200 wi(h e5Mb 
, ■} J hard drive, and a GVP A1230 

• II with 4Mb of RAM, \ have 
recently purchased an Archos 
CD-ROM drive, and the problem is 
atler I Jnslall the CD software, 
Whenever t try to run any ScaJa 
script, big Of small, (be screen goes 
blank and a requester comes up 
slating that the machine 1$ out of 
memory. 

Currently, tfie only way I can use- 
Ihe CD-ROM is by booting up Ihe 
comp-uter witti the suppli&d software, 
which does nol solve Ifie problem. Do 
I nefld more RAM tor my system, or 
am I only going to be able lo use 
Scala arid thie CD separately? 

Ku;t Daflas, Middtesex 

rThe Archoa CD handler 
Software is not that brfl- 
Jiant, and it does segm to 
Iw the cause of your problems. It 
may be worth getting hold of the 
latest version of the Nandler 
software, which fs up to about 
version 11, and that may solve 
your problems. 

Another way around your prob- 
lem Is there should be a CDQ DOS 
Driver in your DEVS^DosDrivers' 
drawer. If you move ttiis out of the 
DOB Drivers drawerp the CD 
tundier software won't be started 
each time you boot up your 
machine. This will let you ijse 
Scats In peace, and then whenever 
you wish to use the CO, simply 
doubie-chck the CDO icon and the 
CD Boflware will be started.

^ ( have a l?Mb Amiga 600 arid 
')-^ am planning to add an IDE 

hard drive and possibly a CD- 
ROM via lb& PCMCI'A slot. I'm getting 
r<[o DTP and want to add some exira 
memory, but the only way seetns to be 
to use either a Z or 4Mb PCMCIA mem- 
ory' card, which have seemingly disap- 
ffflared from the current Amiga adverts, 
rte tflere any other way of expanding the 
ftfiOO's memory further? 

M Toms, l$!s of Wight 

^ The AGOO really Is the 
Vt ^. machine that Commodore 
*' forgot, and it is quJte difficult 
findin'gi any adverts selling products 
for it. The PCJWCIA cards that used to 
be advertised were fairly expensive, 
jfid they slowed the A 1200 down so 
they never really tool< off. The other 
downer is that It would tie up your

PCMCIA slot. If you plump for a PCM- 
CIA card, you could try looi<Fng in ^ 
PC (spit sppt) magazine, it none of the 
Amtga dealers can help. 

r do remember a A600 card that 
could take either 2 or 4lMb of memory, 
so it wSiS possibie to expand your 
A6O0 up to Sftdb in conjunction with a 
PCMCIA fl hate that acronym) card. 
The problem you are going to have is 
that DTP really requires a fast proces- 
sor. Vou do not say what DTP soft- 
ware you have, but on our February 
'94 issue we gave away 'The 
Publisher' which is an ex eel lent DTP 
paiCkaga and its mairt advantage is 
that it is extremely fast. 

If you really do fancy getting seri- 
ous aibout DTP, you might want to 
consider getting a second-hand 
A 1200 fitted with a hard drive and an 
accelerator.

/ >^"^ I tmugtit an A500 back in 1S90 
' % ,: to which I have added a a Mb 
memory expansion card, a 
40Mb hard drive with 4Mh of RAM The 
problem I am having is that I have 
installed Civiiiiation and Lemmings 2 
onto my hard drive, but when I try lo run 
them they toth crash the machine, com- 
plaining about not eno(jgh memory. Am i 
doing something wrong or do I need 
some more hardware? ts there a solution 
that will not cost an ami and a leg? 

Steve Mellows, Cambridge 

Cr It sounds to me like you do 
not have enough chip mem- 
ory. This is Iha memory used 
to store the grapihics and sounds 
used by the games. The ASDO you 
have prot^ably only has a Vi Mb of chip 
memory, and as you are running the 
games off the hard drive the amount 
of available thip memory is reduced, 
so rt cannot get the required memory 
to run. 

One option is that you could fit a 
mega chip axpansion board which 
would give you 2Mb of chip memory - 
very handy for using paint packages, 
but it does cost a £1SD. The other 
aiternattve is if you have a revision b 
mother board. Vou can perform a httte 
surgery on it which will give you liMb

of chip memory. However, we take no 
responsibility for any damage caused 
to your machine as a result of per- 
forming this opBration, and suggest 
that you get an authorised engineer to 
do the modification tor you. 

After you have checked that you 
have a revision 6 mother board - It 
says on the far right - you should 
locate thre>e small square solder pads 
labelled JP2. just left of the central 
square chip. You need to cut the con- 
nection between the bottom two 
squarea - a craft knife is best - and 
you do not have to cut very deeply at 
all as the soider |oin is on the surface 
and is quite thin. You then have to

I cannot get TUDE to work. What's going on? 

Lois of PBoplB, everywhere 



Whoops, looks like he fift the tree. Did you extract 
TUDE off our September CoverDisk? If you double^ 

— clicked the GUI icon then tried to use your selected 
options, all that happened is that you got an error message. 

We made a bit of a boob there, but do not worry as the 
problem is quite easy to correct. The TUDE GUI program Is 
separate from the actual TUDE program, which can only be 
used from the shell. When you teJI the GUI program to run 
TUDE, it cannot find it as it onily looks at the set path, which 
does not include the directory TUDE is in. 

What you have io do is first boot up the first disk and 
extract the TUDE program into ram:. Next, open up the RAM 
disk and from the Workbench menu seJect the show ail files' 
option. ¥ou should now see a C drawer and the TUDE drawer. 
Open up the TUDE drawer and find the TUDE program. Now 
you have to drag TUDE into the Ram:C drawer. If you now run 
the GUI program it will be able to find the actual TUDE 
program and every thing should work fine.

of AmigaGuides. Hang on - 

Paul rve just had an id&a tor a feature. 

As far as I can tell, there is no way 

of getting the button in an 

AmigaGuide to be rendered in any 

other style. It ignores the buitt-in sty la 

commands, and also ignores any 

ANSI escape codes you might try. 

If you are using AmigaGuide under 
OS3.0 or higher, it Is possible to do a

I hope you caj-i help me out as I am getting exireme'ly Irusi rated. 




Alex Cunie. Ayrshire 



W^ The problem you are having is that you do rtot have the correct DOS 

k^ ^ Driver. As someone has kindly pointed out, you will need to copy the 

CDO DOS driver into your DEVS:DosDriver drawer. Unfortunately, only 

AmigaDOS 3,1 came with CD-ROM support, so onty 3,1 owners will have a 

CDRom. handler and accompanying CDO DOS driver in their L: and 

DEVS: Dos Drivers drawers. 

However, all is not lost. What you need to get hold of is the AmiCDRom soft- 
ware. This will install the correct driver and handler software to allow you to 
use your CD piayer. This Ss available on Fred Fish disks, so any decent PD 
house should be abl» to supply yeu with the right disk. 

The information displayed by the Install tools shows that the CD is connec- 
ted to the SCSI chain. You may still have problems using the CD as it stands 
because the CD data is repeated for every SCSI device entry. This csn t>e cured 
by Fitting a SCSI terminator, which b&sicaliy indicates that there are no more 
devices attached to the SCSI chain. 



type is supported, the AmigaGuide 
will t» able to display or play the file. 
The link takes the form of a normal 
NODE link, but the second part Is 
the path name of the data file. For 
example: 

aClt'i I Picture' tiPik <Vark:Cu1diffl)Pi[turt>y 

Using thia technique, h is also pos- 
slible to do links to other guides, 
which are saved as separate files. The 
only problem with using the guide to 
display or play picture and sound files 
is that It will be on a blank window, 
which does not look that nice. 

If is possible to execute system 



commands from button presses. Tha 
format is the same as above, but you 
use the word 'system' instead o\ 
'link', and you have to add a '/mair' 
to the end of the file name - don't asK 
me why you lust have to; 

at'Pictun' iritii 'run RultiViiH 
lfflrle;Tft(Ufe^PlTPii:!ufe/iiin'} 

This will allow you to display a pic- 
ture using another AmigaGuide or 
MultiVjtw on the same screen, but in 
a s«>parate window - which I think 
looks better. It also allows the user to 
get rid of the picture whenever they 
like. 



T I am writing (o you tor heip with an 
, ArnigaDOS problem that i have. On my 
old A600HD Willi WE2.0S, t u&ed 10 be 
able to dump ASCII text or directory listings to 
the printer from the CLI. with the following com- 
mand tine: type Safest TO PRT: or list s; TO 
PRT:. 

Now that I fiave -upgraded my machine to an 
AlZPOHD. the above command line wtHI crash 
my machine, and sometimes a prompt will 
appear which wilf ask lor b volume with no name. 

The hard drive I have is a 120Meg Seagate - 
It was in my A600 but I re-inslalled it in the 
A1200. The boot parNtion did originally 
have WBa.05 on it. All other aspects of 
printing are Tine, and f currently get around the 
problem by making a temporary file in RAM 
and using ppmore to print out the file, which 
works fine. Most of my executable library and 



Printer prediomcnt 



device files ere imploded with imploder. and I 
use early Explode patch to allow programs to 
use them. 

t would like to take this opportunity to corvgrat- 
uiate you on an excellent magazine, and also 
your "Ulilily Heaven' CoverDtsk was BRILL, it's 
great to see lots of useful PD programs on your 
Cover Disk, so Iteep up the good worlKK! 

Adrian Hichings. Gwynedd 

jT' We are always susceptible to 
k^ ^ grotesque amounts of praise - glad 

you like the magazine ;SO much. 
As for your problem, I would firstly check 
that you have fully installed all the new 



Workbench 3.0 files over the old 2.05 files. 
Having said that though, using an older ver- 
sion of the parallel or printer device should 
not mak& the computer crash. 

I am going to have to point my finger at 
early Explode. As It is quite an otd patch, 
there is a chance that the new OS is doing 
something it cannot handle. I would 
unlmplode all your device and libraries files 
t>ecause the amount of room you gain is not 
that great, and all you are doing is slowing 
the computer down hacauaa each time it 
opens a library or device file It is having to 
decompress it, Increasing the amount of time 
it takes to run programs. 

If you really want to compress your system 
tiles you might want to consider the XPK dis- 
tribution, which is usable for any data files, 
or the Disk Expander product.

Part 15 



S$embly i&nguage programmers 
Irequentiy need to be able \a write 
text messages back lo a Shell win- 
dow. The good news at this point is that it is 
very easy to do and by rrtaliing use of a few 
weli chosen macros, you can etfectivoSy gel 
the assembler lo write most of the code for 
you. This month's example is based on 
three macros: WRITE DOS, which sels up a 
DOS library Wrilo[) function eali, and CALL- 
SYS and LINKLIB which (as regular read- 
ers wili already know) are used to generate 
the library calling code. 

A descriprion of the Write() function; has 
been pro\flded in itie accompanying bojcout 
and you see that for delivering text mes- 
sages, this function needs to know the 
lenglh of Ihe te>!l string. One way to work 
Out the nunnfaor of chaj-acters i$ to actually 
count them, but this approach is both 
tedious and error prone. A better way is to 
get the assembler to do the counting for you 
by placing an additional label at the end of 
the text, and then usiin^ the EOUate direc- 
tive to set il to a value based on the currenl 
assembler location counter valiie minus the 
start o< the original string like this; 



label, it's possible to create a macro that 

autOh>atioaily forms the siee label from the 
string name it is glwen. The WRITEDOS 
macro, sbown in listing 1, does exactly ihis 
and it therefore allows a programmer to 
create text display code simply by writing 
slatemenis like:

Notice at thjs point that we neatl to identify 
the standard outpul handle for the Shell- 
There is an easy-to-use DOS function 
called OutputO wtiich allows us to obtain 
this, The function needs no parameters and 
since the result comes back in register dO. 
the fragment for identifying the handles 
looks like this;

UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE 

Those of you who are new to assembler 
coding may find il useful lo know what 
the assembler does as it encounters 
Ihe WRITEDOS macro call. Firstly, the 
macro gels expancted to produce these 
instructions:

The result is thai ttie asseml)ler sets the 
second labS'l lo the size of the preceding 
leitt string. Now, if we also adopt a conven- 
tion wheretty the sizes of all strings are rep- 
resented by adding SIZEOF to tt>e original

The CALLS YS macro also gets expande; 
causing ttie _LVO prefix to be added j 
the 'Write' label and generating a fur 
reference to the system include file LH 
KLIB macro which is then also expant 
The result is that the assembler ends 
producing code which looks like this: 



V 



AH we need now is a runabie example and you" 
find this on the CoverDisk. 01 course, WRITEDOS 
can be used lor control character output as well as 
text string output so, 10 make the example a little 
more interesting, I've included a couple of console 
control sequences which tell the SJiell window lo 
turn italic test display on and off. The data for these 
calls are set up in ]osi ihe same way as already 
explained, witti italic control being provided by these 
iwo definrlions: 



s^ss33r?r 

generation sanrfwiched between the calls that con- 
trot the italics setting like this:

You'll therefore find the real text message 



And that's basically all th^re is to it as far as basic 
Shell window text display is concerned. So that the 
exampte code can be assembled withoul the official 
Amiga system files. I've included alt necessary LVD 
(library vector oflset) values for the function calls 
and the WRITEDOS, CALLSVS and LINKLIB 
macros in Ihe source itself. The runabie torni of the 
program does, of course, need to be run from a 
Shell window because it will be to that window that 
the outpul text will be sent I

H^ 



he Amiga has been around for quate a while now and 

when it was released il only had two pieces of software 
other than Workbench, one or which was a paint package 
called Pfism, the olher a piece of music software tfiat Debhie 
Harrv sang along to at the launch of the Ami;ga. 

The situation tias changed somewhat over the last ten years, 
with a particular concentration in tfie arenas tfie Amiga started 
wilti. namely graphics and music. And of course, there's a lot of 
software out there that might not be familiar to you. especially il 
you are a relatively new Amiga owner. So let's plunge straight into 
our categories and tiave a loott al what's available. 



Graphical glom 



Let's start with Ifi© category that launctied 
ll^e Amiga - graphics. With a wide 
seted:k>n of paint packages at our disposal, 
we have always been well catered for. 
We've got the Paints [□, P and TV) and 
Brilliance, arvd we've got !he know-how to 
use ttiem. For a long lime, the only choice 
that had to be made was whether you 
were going to buy DPaint or not do any 
graphics, bul D Paint's thurhder has been 
somewhat stolen over the past three or so 
years by two new contenders; Brilliance 
and Personal Paint. 

Personal Paini'^ start was somewhat 
shaky. It looked like a sub-standard DPaint 
clone and behaved like one in some 
respects too. It still only offers painting in 
256 colours on screen {no HAM or HAMS}, 
but if does now have an animation system 
and many more features tiesides. 

Some of the more interestmg ones 
include a virtual menKKy system tor manip- 
ulating bftmaps larger than your memory 
would normally be athle to hold, and the 
ability to produce tioth Random Dot 
Stereograms and Single Image 
Stereograms Telalively painlessly (until you 
have to look at ttiem, of course). It also has 
both whole-image and brush-based image 
processifig functions, so you can paint 
over an area to make It embossed, for 
instance, which, while somewhat slow, 
adds a wtiole new set of tools for creativity. 

Personal Paint is full of innovations and, 
uniike DPaint and Brilliance, is still in 
development, so it can only get better. It is 
also ttie or>ly native paint package that 
properly supports graphics cards. Brilliance 
is also an innovative package geared 
towards the artist rather than the computer 
fiend, it has superti tools for animation and 
an intenesting, if somewhat unfamiliar - to 
afficiooados of the DPainfPPaint layout - 
interface, 



Seriouslif 




JValnt 




Brilliar*oe actualty consists of two paint 
packages, one for norniat register paint, 
and a version for use under HAM whidi 
saves out 24-bit tiles. DPaint is still going 
great guns, especially sir>ce it now comes 
with a macro recorder and an enhartced 
move requester, but it still seems pretty 
slow and it's not going to get any faster. 

There is one ottier dedicated paint 
package avaiiaWe tor the Amiga, but you 
need: to have a pretty atonking machine to 
take advantage of it. The litle in question 
is TVPaint which now supports layering 
effects like Photoshop (although it is limit- 
ed to only three layers) and improved 
speed and fluidity In its painting tools. 
Hcvweuer, as 1 already said> you are going 
to need a far wallet to get it. Not only does 
it cost somewhere in the region of E-tOO 



DidBa ni[ei|5 



for the software, you really need at leas 
14Mb RAM and a fast graphics cardm 
use it. Having said ttiat, it is the only on 
of the packages I have msentioned Itii 
supports pressure-sensitive graphics 
tabletS' properly.

Video. The last bastion of Amiga superiority. Only the 
Amiga makes direct genlocking or recording la video 
possible without expensive graphics cards. And as 
such, we have some stonking video titling packages 
such as Scala. Broadcast Titler II, Montage 24 and 
Big Alternative Scroller 2 to rely on for all our CG 
needs. 

Scala is the big daddy of them all. More than a 
video titler really, Scata can be put to use as a Point 
Of Information display tool or iriteractive multimedia 
presenter. Scala comes in a variety of guises, from 
the simplicity and smaW scale of HT100, all the way 
up (0 IC400, otherwise known as InfoChannel. 

InloChannel is designed as a distributed infonna- 
tk>n system and is used to control video walls and 
hotel TV systems. In the middle somewhere is Scala 



Amiga Computinq 



MM400 - we reviewed it earlier this year - the king 
of Amiga multimedia packages. With the ability lo 
scale fonts on the fly. have wipe effects both o- 
and off the screen, and load almost any type 
picture file formal suitable for video work, Scala h 
a lot hidden under its bonnet.

machines. Of eour^, if you want total con- 
trol over your page layout, you will almost 
certainly want to go for PageStream 3 This 
is a fully-bbwri, almoshprofessional DTP 
package. I say almost prolessional 
because there are certain fealures that 
remain to be implemented including, 
perhaps most fmporiantly, ttie abilily to 
produce colour separaied documenls. 
Without this ability you wilhbe limited lo 
either workir^ in greyscale or printing on 
yoyr own cokiur printer. 

You (}(>ukj, attemativEly, go for a copy of 
Pro Page, now resurrected by LH 
Publishing who are able lo offer it for 
£49 95, However, this doesn't aller Ihe fact 
that the product Is no longer in develop- 
menl- 

On the database front there hasn't realy 
been anything to matcJi Supert>3ise*s domi- 
nation of the market, but wilh new databas- 
'5ts from HiSofi {Twists), Softwood (Final 
Data), and Digita (Data Store), perhaps 
there will be a new brand leader. Howe'vef, 
none of the databases I have mentioned 
seern to have the depth presented by 
Superbase Professioral. 

When it comes to spreadsheets, the 
Amiga i$ even less well sejved, with only 
TurboCalc really in the running, although 
ttiere is a new title on the horizon witb 
Scuftwood's RnaJ Calc, 



let's get serious 



riou$' software has always been 

kfh-tty ihin on Ihe ground for Amigas, 
nllke certain other machines, bul we do 

ivp a couple of splendid word proces- 
in Final Writer and Wordworth, Final 
Wet should just be hitting a new version 

you read liiis, with even more features 
leluding a sensible way to apply bold and 
styles to text and a tab' feature that 
jeds to be seen to be urKtefSteod. 

In Ihe baftli; lor speed at ward process- 
1, Final Writer wins hartds down. It also 
jrries with more fonts and clip art than 
'ordworlh and supports ARexx. 
towever. a lot of people don't like Final 
War's non-standard interface and feel 

re at home wifh Wordworth's more 
nwga-like approach. Both these pack- 
g«s really need a hard drive and a 



machir>e with at least a 60020 and 4Mb 
RAM to njn weN, but for those with a hum- 
bler specification, there is always Final 
Copy or WordwortJi SE. Wordworth SE is 
merely a cut-down version of the lufl pack- 
age, whereas Final Copy is aclually a drf- 
(erent program geared towards lower end

ADPro introduced Amiga owners lo tine real power of 
image processing, TlT&r& were olher pacl^ages avaik 
aWe, tnJl nor>e had (tie siabie, flexible irtterfaoe Ihat 
ADPfo presented to She wortd. Times have moved 
on since ttien - indeed AOPro is no ionger being 
updated and the company formerty l(nown as ftSDG 
(now elastic Reality) is working on producls for pret- 
ty much any platform other ttian >h& Amiga. But it's 
not a great 10S4 as the last vei^on of ADPro was 
distinctly disappointing and we have some supert3 
new packages to play with. 

Fir$t up is ImageF/X which has gone from 
strength to strength since its incepiion as GVP's iri- 
house imiage processor. ImageF/X now supports 
24-bit preview screens ri ynu are lucky enough to be 
njnning the CytjergraphX software, and its range o< 
features and Hie formats tfiat are supported has 
grown apace. However, (he real star of this year hs& 



scores is as a 24-bit paint and process tool, parti 
larty suited to retouching scans and generating sli 

ning backdrops and composite pictures. Witfi 
active picture compositing and brush-based in 
processing effects., the sort of pictures you cari ( 
ate is only limited by your febrile imagination.

The Amiga was producing high-quality 
ray traced images before ihe majority of 
PC owners even knew what ray tracing 
was. With a long pedigree. LightWav© is 
probably ttie besl-known 3D package lor 
the Amiga now. but you shouldn't forget 
the briliiant conlribution made by 
Irnagine to the Amiga's standing in the 
3D arena. 

There are also unknown quantities in 
the form of Maxon Cinema 4D and 
Reflections, two German ray tracers of 
repute, both of which will be released 
over here. Lightwave is the one to go for 
for ease of use and add-on utilities. You 
can get utilities that generate explosions, 
gravity, hair, flocking behaviour, target 
tracking, and so on and so on. 

There is another 3D package thai 
doesn't seem to get as much press as the 
other two, namely Real 3D. The older 
versions were quite simple to uise. but 
w#i the introduction of Real 3D vZ, Real 
became a iot mare complex. Real 3D is 
now kieaily suited to peopie who wish to 
simiiiate physical experiments as you can 
assign gravity effects, collision detectvon, 
elasiidty and other physical properties to 
the objects in your scenes. 

With Real 30 il is even possible to go 
bowling and see the resulU, albeit a lot 
more slowly than you would if you just 
went down to your local bowling aHey 
As with any processornntensive soft- 
ware package, you will find yourself 
growing old if you are wailing for your 
pictures to render on a 68000 machine. 
so make sure you have plenty of RAM 
and processor power before you go and 
lash out on one of these packages,

[TliscBllang 



There are always some things that cannot 
be pigeonholed but shouldn't be forgotten 
because that is the case, it's the same 
story with Amiga software. There aiB oer- 
teiin titles, like Distant Suns, Uiat fit uneasily 
into categories like educational. It's as 
close a fit as we are likely to get, bul why 
celegorise them at all? So here's my 
(admittedly limiled) selection Ol misfit bits 
of software that afe just to good not lo 
merilion, 

First up might as well be Distant Suns. 
Mike SmiUiwick's Supefb bit of astronomi- 
cal software should be in anyone who 
even has the vagyesi interest in the nighl 
sky's software collection. You can spend 
hours trawling around the ephemeris, 
tracking comets and planets, finding out 
more information on star systems, looking 
at close up pictures of the moon - it's 
almost like having The Sky at Night' on 
your Amiga. 

And that really sad (ink brings me onto 
our next selection, pop pickers - Airiink. 
Airtink is ene of those products that you 
might never hear about, but would come in 
really handy tor you. You might have diffi- 
culty gettir>g; a copy of it now that you do 
know about it. but you sboykJ be aisle to at 
least try the numlser at Ihe bottom of this 
section if you are interested. 

So what does it do? Basicalty speaking: 
using Airiink, you can control any infrared 
device within rartge ot your Amiga. Airiink 



\s, specifically aimedi at DTV peopiG wN 
want to control their VCRs from ttii 
■Workbench screen and consisis ot a sma 
box at the end of a caWe which plugs ml 
your second mouse port. 

You can recreate your video's remai 
control on the screen using DPaini an 
ihen make areas on the brush 'hot' so its 
tfiey act as buttons whose functions s 
s&\ wiihin AirLink's interface. It's a real 
simple system and one that worli 
extremely well. 

My third and final treat is a piece ( 
software that is variously described a& 
programmer's lool, which is true 
programs like ProControl and Fib^ 
Factory have been written using it - an| 
as a multimedia package, which is aia 
tme since several POI systems have bel 
created using it. It's both. It's GanDo, i 
program with a six-year pedigree, and' 
hiave used il lo create my AmiTCPH-e :► 
program and a couple of front-ends 1: 
slide show-type atfairs.

there be more? 



So there you have it. A short guide to ttie best softwaro for your Amiga- There ar* 
many otfwr categories to deal with like disk utilities, bacl^ up programs, education 
sampling, structured drawing, communicatiarts, programming, and so on- f*efha 
we will he able to print a continuation ot this arliete at some point dealing with the 
ottier categories, well see. 

In the mean tjme, do go out and buy some of the software i ve told you about He 
Your cortintted support ol the Amiga software mafkel will ensure future versiOrts 
the software that is still being developed, and make sure our remaining softvi 
doesn t go the way of ADPro, ProPage. I^aint Brtlliantce and all those otfters-

GRAPHICS 



Ohe problem with most Amiga 
graphics tablets i$ one of sonsl- 
tivity, In line past. Amiga tablets 
nave offered the ergonomics ot a pen, 
tiul ihat's about it. Fortunately Wacom, a 
company renowned for graphics tablets 
'y\ bolt! PC and Mac, also support ttie 
iimiga via TVParnI and Stiareware 
aullnor Roland Scliwingel, 

Aiihough sensitivity isn't an option on 
Wofkbeneh - as tinere's no need outside 
specific appiicaticns - you can still 
rspJace tfie mouse with ttie cordless pen 
and labliel for g«r>@rBi Amiga interaction. 
Once installed in llio WB-Startup 
lawef. the pen and tablet kick in on 
it-up allowing all the normal click, 
drag and drop options associated 
tiie traditional Amiga mouse. 
*ever, this doesr\'i mean you sacri- 
fhce ttie trusty rodent, because both 
devices work tiappily in tandem, with the 
tablet attachied to ttie serial port rather 
I'lan lhe mouse port. And because the 
;:.ontrol software opereles on a system 
level, you're tree to apply ttie tablet's 
frgonomic talents with any appllcalioo 
_vi>u choose, rogardless of wtiettier rt 
jrs direct support, 

Ot>viously. if the software doesn't 
Efer pressure sensitive support you fire 
niled to t>asic on/off application, but 
yen so th>ere's still an appreciable ben- 
efit within a numbei" ot applications in 
addition !o just palnl programs. 
Freetiand sketching and general use 
■; within 3D applications, structured draw- 
ling software, In short, any program that 
can benefit from the subtlety a pen can 
provide. 

Another major plus for the Wacom, as 
opposed to many ottier Amiga tablets, is 
Its SKtremely economical use o1 CPU 
time. All loo often, tablets attached to 
tfie serial port eat up a disproportionate 
arrount of processor time and therefore 
dramatically reduce the overall 
performance of the machine. 

Set-up and installation of the Wacom 
is exiremeiy simple courtesy of the 
Wacom control commodity, which as 



Small but bBautiful 



As you've probably r>oticed. Wacom 
tablets aren t cheap. Even the UD- 
DEOa-R, which incidentally is the 
smallest in the range, offers only a 
153.6mm X 204.8mm working area. 

Although this may sound uncom- 
fortably small. 1 found It perfectly 
adequate, and it's already played a 
key role in most of my recertf cre- 
ations, inciocfing a number ot 
magazine covers and Illustrations. 

ir you have a copy of TVPaint and 
want the best from it, a pressure 
sensitive Wacom Is an essential. 
And after ten minutes you'll wonder 
how you got by without one.

the 



Simple «ef-«ui and ^uarmntamit 
apptieMinii 

you can see only requires tho 
minimum of effort to accommo- 
date any tablet in lhe Wacom 
range. After setting the various 
toggle switches, the working 
area of your tablet will be on- 
line. At this point the niti reacts 
as the left mouse button, with a 
double push opening drawers 
or applications, while a single 
push andi hold will select and 
drag. 

The fight mouse button is 
repleced with e nicely designed 
micra-swtlch on the pen itself, 
which rests conveniently 
twneath ihe forefinger. Add the 
two together and you have a 
traditional mou$e options in a pen. 

Thanks to TVPaint, Amiga users are 
finally allowed access to the sensitive 
touch which professional artists demand 
from s qualify graphics tablet. Before fir- 
ing-up the TVPaint, the first step is to 
shut down workbench emulation as this 
frees the serial port and therefore the 
tablet forTVPaint's built-in control. After 
selecting and saving Ihe appropriate 
table! name and your senal conligura- 
tion from the star|-up screen, you're 
ready to get creative. 

PRESSURE SENSITIVE 

Once Inside the software you're 
automatically in tablet mode, although, 
Mite Workbench, your mouse Is still 
active if the rteed arises. Although not 
obvious at first, pressure sensitivity 
affects every application of paint to 
canvas. Using ttie airbrush pressure 
Iranslates into the density of paint, while 
a normal pen's footprint grows 
and shrinks as you apply the pressure. 
Even out t>ruEhes benelit from the pen 
as the pressure applied translates into 
the transparency of the stamped brush. 
You also have complete control over the 
way the pressure iranslates to Ihe 
canvas. 

For aolkJ brush strokes this defines to 
the amount the brush stroke will grow as 
the pressure is applied via a user 
defined percentage. Better still, there's 
even a definable pressure curve which 
will line tune the affect in relation to the

The freedom from a cord is an obvi-

Schat/lruhe's CD- Writ© software has 
been anticipated with some gnlhusiasm —

..: s narrve will be disappointed to find that 
'nte is not the rniraculous Sjuper bar- 
it initially sounds like. This software

The dilfegience is that the alterations

rather than on the actual CD itself. 

t package is simply comprised of a sin- 

i Soppy containing the software, and a 

nual, most of which seems unneces- 

for ihe basic applicalions most peo- 

iwill use CD-wnte for. Installation is fully 

jmatic with the only other requlremani 

iiirtg that Ihe user must create a new 

pr&ctory lin which CD -write will record

From then on, every timie you use a CD

The other loon n>aans that the original disc 
contents are always availatsle shoold you

has been virluaJly deleted. 

In practice, CD- write allows us.ers Io 
reorganise and: amend discs to optimise 
them for their individual requirements. 
Unlike when using a disc normally, for 
example, Ihe user will be able to 
rearrange its appearance on the 
Workbench - by moving icons, changing 
window sizes, and so on - and Ihen snap- 
shot the preferred set up so it will appear 
whenever the CD is accessed- 

lt"s also possible to add new prograims 
to your CDS', though these will actually be

Mora d1 a CD optimizer than the miracle product it's billed 
as, CD-Write is an unusual but welcome program all the 
same. Too often, tiles on disc archiifes are lumped willy nilly 
into huge, unstructured directories, and this package could 
h^lp usars begin to make sense of them. 

Of course, any major overhaul ot a disc's organisation 
could be almost as laborious as compiling a new archive 
yourselt, but even a few changes can make useful material 
more easily accessible. 

CD-Write would more accurately tie named CO Spring 
Cleaner, and the price is rather high considering its uses are 
mainly cosmetic. Nevertheless, it's a must for the Amiga 
user with a large cupboard ol poorly compiled CDs. 



adding more recent 

downloads, and it will all conve- 
niently appear in your CDC window. Those 
AmiganutSi who have Io give Workbench 
their own customised appearance will also 
be able to replace boring and repetitive CD 
icons with more interesting buttons using 
fiifegic WB.. 

If a CD is to be used for BBS services, 
the program can also be used to make 
certain files unavailable by virtual deletion. 
This could be useful to preveni illegal 
downloads. The packaging claims many 
other applications are possible, but that's 
basically what it's all about. A final point, 
though, is that the program will work fine 
with mult^le CDs. £3

tnalking a career in enterteinment software. In 1995 there are m&i

realise Is that forward look^J»game companies neod peop^ wiili

game Will require artists, musicians, producers,

who gel paid to mess around with com- 
puter games ell day,, so that the de-vel- 
□pers know they're ■cielivsring Ihe 
gOCKis the corisumers wanl. 

Most companies will lake sctiool 
leavers for this position, and the stan- 
dard salary is around £6000 - which 
isn't bad, considering, However, in 
addition to game pSaying sktIJs and 
knowledge, it's important that applh 
cants can demonstrate the abi'lity lo 
report usefully on playability problems. 

Those who imagine it's a dream job 
should bear in mind that loakimg at a 
screen for eiglrit hours a day replaying 
the same game can t>e rather wearing, 
as any of our reviewers will tell you. 
The job can, however, open doors. 

"I know ol many people who started 
in this roie and moved on within the 
company to higher roles," said Glen 
O'Connel of Sony Electronic Publishing 
tformerly Psygnosis). "Oyr company, 
and the industry as a whole, is usually 
very good to people once they're 
onboard in the first place," 

IN DEMAND 

Higher up the ladder, creativ/e souls 
are just as in demiand as computer sci- 
ence gradijaies. 2D and 3D artists are 
required tioth for in-game graphics and 
packaging design, and companies like 
Team 17 say artists are always wel- 
come to submit examples of their work. 
What's more, the Amiga is still widely 
respected as an artists computer, and 
adverts in ttie trade paper still ask for 
Amiga-based experience. 

Creative writers are already used lor 
many projects, not just for knocking up 
story lines and game- related novellas, 
but also for providing scripts integrai to 
the software. With Ihe advent of inter- 
active movies, ihis role is going to 
become increasingly important. 

In contrast to the artistic roies which 
were in demand from early on in the 
history of game design, the number of 
musicians making a career in the 
industry have been few and far 
between. This form of entertainment 
has traditionally focused soiely on mak- 
ing a visual impact, and after months 
spent designing ground-breaking 
graphics, most titles used to have 



i 



labour of iDue 



The offices may be plusher, the expense account may 
be larger, l3ut the increasingly corporate atmosphere 
that exists in some of Ihe bigger publishing companies 
won't suit everybody. Making a game with a huge 
team ol programmers, artists, musicians and writers 
has Its advantages, but some view it as creation by 
committee. Indeed, some of the mediocre efforts that 
have been produced by this method show how great 
the pitfalls are. 

Programmers that don't want to make too many 
compromises ought to consider approaching smalier, 
more independent developers Sensible Software 
have had phenomenal success with (heir arcade sport 
games, but the atmosphere at their base in Saffron 
Waldon. Essex, has greater similarities with student 
digs than the traditional office set up. 

The casual way in which these people work, how- 
ever, should not deceive you into thinking it's an easy 
life. The hours may not be hgid, but flexibility at com- 
panies like Sensible is counterbalanced by the fact 
that programmers are often working well into the night 



m project <le«dtlnes approach. Even more dedicaikr 

will be required if you want to develop games for dtt. 
Amiga market in its current transitory slate. With all hii 
the smaJI companies putting their Amiga plans on hfk, 
until the outcome of Esoom's relaunch plans becor* 
clearer, your best option may be to go it your own wfl) 

Vulcan Software, makers of the highly successfu 
Valhalla adventures and the Timekeepers mini-series 
did just that. Possibly the smallest 3e1f<;ontained outf- 
in games development, this Portsmouth-based corr^ 
ny Is composed of just two people, Lisa Tunnah ar£ 
Paul Camngion, 

Between them: they do everything from program-, 
ming to writing storylines and making cups ot tea -li| 
fact, they even do their own accounts. Recountin' 
tales of nightmare 20-hour working niays, Lisa eonfesi 
as thai she's had doubts as to whether it's worth it: ' 
can see the advantages ot doirkg things the corpora^ 
way," she commented. "Like getting holidays, ic

A career in computer journalism is a topic that would require 
an article in itself, but it s worth knowing that 4ots of people 
high up in the games Industry started out as humble feviewers 
for the magazines. Team I7's Marcus Dyson and Alan Bunker 
wefe writers for Amiga Format and Amiga Action respectively, 
and ih0 cr^inpany Is emptoying people with journalistic skills to 
write, research and edit their multimedia projects 

To start of as a staff writer on a magazine, applicants mefely 
need enthusiasm, ideas and a flair for writing Interesting, 
though not necessarily grammatically correct, copy. The pay is 
disappointing, but promotion can come remarkably quickly and 
there Is no better wai^ of developing contacts within the I 
ndustry. 

Contact each of ttie magazines indlvidualfy for details ot 
what they require' from submissions of written worM, Remember 
also that \t no permanent positions are available, you might be 
able to wr^te articles on a freelance basis.

NOVEN/IBEJ=t 1995 



computer jingles added as an 

afterthought, 

Once again this is changing. 
Multimedia, the Japanese console 
rivalry and home cinema, is making 
game designers realise I hat impressive 
in-game sound is vital if future games 
are going to grab the consumer's atten- 
tion. Developments like Q-Sound, a 
surround sound system for computer 
games, show the way the trend is 
heading, and companies like Sony 
Electronic Publishing aiready have a 
team of in-house, full lime musicians. 

With games being produced by 
teams of programmers, artists, writers 
and musicians, it seems the larger 
game companies are attempting to 
adopt hlolEywood-like production val- 
ues. And like in any film production, 
someone has to bring all these 
resources together to get a satisfactory 
end result, in computer entertainment, 
this is the job of the producers. 

Bearing similarities with the roles of 
director and producer in a film, the 
game producer manages the develop- 
ment team of a s-oftware project. It's 
their re$pon&ibiltiy to decide what goes 
into a game and what changes have to 
be made, bul they also need technioai 
understanding with regards lo what can 
and can't be done. It's also down to 
them to ensure deadlines are met and 
milestones are set. 

As Team 17's Alan Bunker 
explained, it's a job that requires a deli- 
cate approach sometimes, "At the end 
of the day we like to leave program- 
mers and graphic artists lo be cre- 
ative," he said, "Bul someone has to be 
there to sort out Ihe ideas and encour- 
age Ihe team in the right direction." 

With it being the highest role in 
development, the producers job is the 
ultimate career goal for many game 
programmers and designers. It's clearly 
not a job you can just watk into, howev- 




ilitl mi^i being mi^^ \- 
teams ol prograoiin^ers, Mi 

liiteis M musicians, it mm tlie \mii m 

[Dfitoanes are i\.\m% to adopt 

iiiBQd-lheiifDdu[tiofiualues. 




er, and most people work their way 
through a company, someiimes ev^^ 
Irom their humble beginnings i 
playtesters. 

With experience being so importa.v 
for every career these days, it's wOrt*' 
rernembering that large companies 1:^ 



Spreading

Regardless of the quality of the 
product, every game company need': 
someone to shout atiout It, and this i; 
where the PR people come m. Public 
relations doesn't require prograr 
ming knowledge or artistic talent, b' 
its practitioners do need the gift . 
the gab combined with a serioi 
enthusiasm for games. 

The job basically entails ensum 
that games gel plenty of magaz 
coverage, not just in reviews but a\i 
In previews and work-in progress 
sessions. This obviously invcivr 
spending lots of time communicatir- 
with the press and keeping on goi; 
terms with the publishers. It's the f- 
persons job to offer cover deals 
help with other features, but mair 
with the idea of giving the compai 
and its products as positive and hiv 
a profile as possible, 

Lisa Humphries, a PR represer 
five for the past year wit 
Microprose, tells how It's one of tiial

DQt. it's profitable and, according to Lisa, they love 
doing it, Questioned on the advantages of runninig 
your own business, she explains; ""We do have a loi of 
control, and we're perfeciionists, We've trted working 
(or other people and we just didn't tilte it." 
Vutaan are currently talcing advantage of the fact 



that huge installed user base is crying out for new 
Amiga garres thai are not forthcoming from the high 
profile companies. 

This has opened ttne door for independent develop- 
ers to show their talents, provided they adapi to the 
difficulties that face the current Amiga marttet. Thus, 
Vulcan have successfully overcome the lack of retail 
outlets for Amiga titles by shifting entirely to a direct 
maii order service. 

Stattitig up is r^ol as difficult as It may seem. "t/Ve 
were really Into the idea," Lisa commented, "and 
managed to convince the tiank manager i| was worth 
investing in. Vou've just got to be imaginative and 
committed.* 

So i' tl^re's a ground-breaking game you know you 
can produce, but no-one's prepared lo pubiisti it, then 
setting up business yourself may be worth consider- 
ing. A visit to your local Citizen's Advice Bureau will 
put you in touch with governrtient onlerprise schemes 
end oth^r Support services that will help you assess 
you chances.

Sony Eiectronic Publishing offer work

lines' publisher^. Sony also have an 
evaluation scheme where ttiey invite 
10-1 1-year oJds lo give feedback on

you've got children yom Itiought were

Fioally, a hil of advice on how fo 
make Ihal vital good impression you'll 
need lo differentiate yourself from all 
the other people linocking at the door. 
Deiirdre Murphy from Warner 
Irnteractiiva urges: "Network - use the 
contacts you already have. Offer a 
unique skill. And, above all, show 
emhusiasm* £^

better jobs to get into without OKperi- 

ewB, "f was working in retail at WH 
Smiths." she explained. "I was selling 
music and games, so I had a rough 
idea of what was going on, but not a 

particularly extensive one." 
Writing speculaiive letters and 

sending CVs. however, got her a job 
with Mieroprose which she says is 
Fjn, despite being demanding. 
However, an outv^ard going per^onal- 
ily is- a pre-requisite- "You definitely 
can'i he a wall-flower," she points 
out. 

PR can lead to jobs within games 
sales and marketing, and hence ulti- 
mately onto Ihe gobs ai the top of the 
entertainment software industry. In 
corripariscn to the totally casual 
atmosphere of the development 
team, where heavy meta! t-shirts, 
jeans and trainers aire not an uncom- 
mon sight, most companies require 
mofe business-like presentation from 
its PR and markefing team. 



Do - your home work. Take your game 
knowledge seriously, as all companies 
will want you to demonstrate enthusi- 
asm, understanding and originality of 
kieas. 

Don't - repeatedly phone companies 
unless it's the last resort. Most publish- 
ers and developers are still too small 
to have a personnel manager, so 
you're likely lo start irritating the wrong 
person. Most companies prefer written 
applications. 

D'O - make Ihe most of any applicable 
experience you may have. 'Work experi- 
ence, submitted programs or articles, 
and skills developed in other lines of 
work can all make a difference. 

Don't - imagine the fact you're a game 
playing ace means a lot. Unless you 
want lo be a playtester, that is. 

Do - remember that many jobs in the 
computer industry require good commu- 
nication skills. In such 
cases, anoraks need 
not apply, 

Dor*'l - take the 
industry too lightly 

These people are seri- 
ous about maiking 
gaines, and they'll 
expect you to present 
yourself in a similar 
manner. 

Do - make speculative approaches. 
The general public won't see many 
of the adverts in the trade press, so 
make sure you keep your ear to the 
ground. 



Don't - be discouraged by the industry's 
boyish image it you're female. There are 
hundreds of women already employed 
by game companies.

21 St Century are pledging their 
support to the new Amiga 
machine by releasing their latest 
title. Pinball Monia, for the A1200 
ond AdOOQT. Developed by the 
Spldersoft development team, it 
will contain four rtew tables, each 
with a new theme. Tarontula, as 
you'd expect, contolns all sorts of 
horrtd things like locusts and poi- 
sons. jQilbreak has an unforgiving 
judge who likes to dish out life serv 
tences, Kick-Off aims to create all 
the atmosphere of a football 
motctx and lostty there will be 
Casino, a miniature version of the 
real thing. 

The table size will be increased. 
multi-looll added, and four flippers 
or every table will provide e^ftra 
challenge. A UK reieos© date of 25 
October has been set.

We had a conversation in tlie 
office about ttie many differ- 
ent computers there hiave 
boen over the years, the ones 
that hove just faded away, a 
mere recoHecKon in the 
minds of gomers. So wifh this 
in mind, System hope to put 
togettier a feature along 
these line^. However, there is 
just one problem - we can't 
qctuollv find any of this okj 
liardware. So any readers out 
there wtio can remember 
these old machines, please 
send in your thoughts on the 
mochines and even the 
garrves you could play on 
them. Even better - If you sflli 
have them, why not send In a 
photograph too.

Where are they now? 



^emembBf some of our previews from dim and disfanf months, and now 
wondering what ever happened to certain games? We didn't He - they 
just didn't come out Sorry. 



PiizQ Tycoon unfortunately, 
this intriguing iooking business 
>m just isn't coming out on the 
ligo. The gome wouid only 
rk on certain macliines ond 
MicfoProse believed It wouldn't 
[be wortti bringing out. 
C^ribution deals with maga- 
jnes were considered but 
nothing as yet. 



The Adrenalin(e) Factor - 
Mirage's rother good looking 
cyberpunk blast-'erm-up also 
now looks unlikely to come out 
on the C032. The same goes for 
their Rise of the Robots 2 reSeose. 



Big Red Adventuirei rumour hoe 
it that Core Design's brilliant 
looking Russion- adventure is 
unlikely to see the light of ckay 
on the Amiga. A great shome 
as this looked rother good. 




I 



'ussies Goiofo - 1 dor^'t thir>k it is 
any great loss to ttie games 
community thot this won't see 
^e light of day, A rather cheesy 
locking platformer to say the 
teost. 



Don 7 be disheartened ty this, as there ore still retsases In the 

pipeline and well be attending next monft^'s Buropean Computer 
Trade Show to bring you bong up to dote wStt} all that's happening 
on the Amiga games scen&.

Oink, Oink 

Sounding like a blatantly sexist title. 'Karate 
aobes' is going to do little for the image of 
games for both sexes. It comes complete with 
:jtrocious storyline which is a shame because the 
i>st Amiga game to use full-screen, 256 colour, 
■ijII Motion Video graphics, and the developers, 
Creative Edge Software, claim; "The graphics on 
his will make you feel like you ore watching TV 
on your Amigo! " 

The game uses the talents of people trained in 
mortioi arts who have been digitised, As the 
character moves, so do the backgrounds and 
they update accordingly, The game 15 divided 
if^to two parts - one is the fighting section, the 
other Is an interactive movie which develops 
according to the choices you make. 

Korate Babes also makes the plot on impor- 
iont part of the game (Joy) and goes along the 
iines of: A new competitor called 'Karate Babe' 
A'lns the worldwide martial arts tournament, tak- 
ng the title off the two-time winner. As a result 
-\\e defeated competitor loses his corporate 
:aonsor, his girlfriend, and a role in a movie, He 
Jaims the victofy was a fluke and demands a 
■■Eimatch- She refuses, and as a last attempt to 
"orce a remotch. he kidnaps Karate Babe's sister. 
'borate Babe must find her sister and defend her- 
■,elf against the kidnoppers. 

Creative Edge Software have some other 

■les on the way ond omong these Is Bikini 

Karot© Babes which contains digitised women in 

bikinis fighting. Nothing like these frustrated 

V'r&gfammers, eh? 



Ready for fake off! 



The eagerly awaited Flight of the Amazon Queen 
from Time Warner Is finally here. Set in 194V it Is a 
parody of all the popular ''4D's adevnture serials. 

The plot follows the exploits of Joe King, a pilot 
whose mission is to stop the evti Dr Frank Einstein, 
rescue the Amazons and win over the beautiful 
princess. (Aah). 

The release dote has been set for the 25th 
September and we'll be bringing you a fuil review 
next issue.

Things started to took pretty 
bleak for Amigo maga- 
zin&$ when Emap's Amiga 
games title was put on 
hold.' However, only a 
monttn later, publistiers 
Maverick must have 
decided Emop had mode 
a hasty decision and have 
relaunched The One, which 
is a positive confidence 
boost to the morket. 
They've decided to keep

Inherit the earth 



Life's unfair of times, There i5 a 
brilliant looking adventure 
game which you can find on 
Aminet called Erben der Erde, 
As you can see. it is German 
and this Is the problem, It's in 
the harids of Americon com- 
pany New World Computlrg 
and as yet It Is undecided 
whether or not there will be 
an English version. We cert- 
ainly hope so because the 
gome's detinitely riot the 
some when we have to maiie 
do with tronsjiations from our 
Deputy Editor. 

There is on AGA and ECS 
version planned, and it all 
looks rather unusual. Rather 
thon your usual adventure 
stuff, you control a team of 
animals and graphically it 
looks stunning, with some 
incredibly smooth scrolling. 

So keep your fingers 
crossed for this one.

Top slots 

We recommend the best 
games from itie past few months 




Player Manager 2 - if you enjoyed On tti© 

Ball's graphics and Championship 
Manager's depth and gamepioy, this Is 
undoubtedly the definitive manogement 
Sim, If you want a serious statistical foot- 
ball game with plenty of thrills, then 
Player Manager 2 comes top of the list , 

Gloom - the grophfcs are the best yet for 
games of this genre. Gloom Is complet- 
ely pecked with smooth graphics, a 
huge challenge and. most of all, octlon 
and excitement. It's certainly the best 



attempt yet although with similar efforts 
only weeks away from completion, only 
time will tell which one will rise above the 
rest- 
Colonization Colonization Is a very in- 
depth strategy game and does take a 
while to get into. Once there, though. It's 
o thoroughly absorbing title that hos 
beer; intelligently written. There ts more 
action than you might think for a turn- 
based game ond It continually engages 
the player in planning tt^eir next move. For 
the more cerebral gamesplayer, this 
comes highly recommended. 

Sensible Golf -it's certainly a fantastic lit- 
tle arcade game with many months of 
entertainment, If you con manage to stay 
calm during the frustrating ports, you'll 
find it very enjoyable - especially with four 
players. 




Timekeepers - there's no doubt thot this is 

Vulcan's best release so far, with an 
engaging game system that is easy to use 
and rewording when your plans are suc- 
cessful and your troops drop through the 
exit one by one. At £12,99, Timekeepers 
offers good value for money and packs a 
heatfhy amount of piayabiiity.

udiogenic are not especially known for 

their contributions to tine platform 

genre, being more sports-like - espe- 

ciaiiy witin releases like Groham 

Gooch's Cricket and Wembtey 

intefnationai Soccer ond soon to be imran Katin's 

Cricket all appeoring, not to mention a number of 

other successful games, 

Audiogenic ore certainly not letting th^msetves 
slide down tfiat pit wtiere ott>er companies tiave 
recently t>een disoppeoring to - aithougti. one of 
ttieir latest products. Bubble and Squeok 2, Is on 
ItoW. 

However, one title Is certain to go oiieod, and it 
goes by ttie nome of Odyssey - a platform gome 
wi^ich hos quietly possessed many morphing 
capabilities, it's a side-on platform game winlch 
could deliver a different perspective to ttie already 
mountains of usual platformers out ttiere^ Let's see, 
Tihe idea behiind Odyssey is to Collect various 
crystois from several different tslarids to complete 
ttie game- Or tt^e way through, you'll ertcounter a 
number of cfeotures trving to prevent you from 
doing so. With o large number of perplexing puz- 
des tho1 must be solved to access other areas, 
Odyssey is looking a iot like a puzzling piotfonrver - 
like Delphine Software's Flastiback. 

During your quest you wll encounter a number 
of vorious monsters such as vultures, and an army 
of small people armed with huge sworcte which you 
must overcome to collect the crystois -and pro- 
ceed further. You must fight ttiem while losing as lit- 
tle energy as possible, although what mokes 
Odyssey good to play is the foct that when you do 



lose a serious amount of energy, you don't hove to 
trundle around over-cautiousJy, instead, standing 
sHH for o good 10 seconds will get your breath back 
- replenishing your energy and helping you get 
past the tricky ports. 

One of the hardest parts of Odyssey is negotiat- 
ing the bigger rocks. Vou can fake a swipe at them 



Morphing mania 



When you acquire the morphing power, it is 
possible to morph into a number of objects, 
For instance, you can morph into a rock to 
smash smaiter rocks by falling from a great 
height and then roiling through tiny gaps. This 
is essenfiol for reaching the keys which wl!l 
open the doors to the crysfate, 

Vou con also morph into a bird artd fly high 
above the lower platforms which you would- 
n't be ab^e to reoch If you were using the hero 
without the special morphing poweis. The last 
morph Is a grasshopper, which obviously 
allows you to jump great distances to reach 
hidden ploftorms you normally wcukjn't hove 
seen. 

The morphing characteristic adds a lot to 
the originolity of Odyssey, making if something 
different from the bog-standard type of piot- 
form game around today. The idea of usir>g 
different characters to solve different puzzles 
adds a lot to the depth ond challenge 
tremendously.

_„u2zte3 will no doubt have even the 
St experienced gomes pJayer tearing their hoir 

What people moy fail to feollse. which I'd bet-

completed by running ffcm left to right, 
monsters and picking up tlie crystals at ttie 
nd, You have to neQOtlate oil the puzzles whJchi, 
*lleve me, are quite toxing, They involve moving 
rc>cl<s onto various buttons, directing shooting 
arrows towards pressure zonest and even mofph- 



fcng into drffenent smoiier creatures to squeeze 
through tiny gaps which ore only accessible to the 

smallest of Insects, 

There ore several large islands to battle through, 
occomponied by truly fantastic backdrops. At the 
beginning, when you select an island, a human 
hand appears os o pointer - using very impressive 
rT>ethod onimation with tlie darik black shadow, 
which mokes it smoother than o baby's bottom. 
The morphing sequences are dso animated in this 
way - proving what a graphical feast it will be 
when ft firKiily hits the shops.

Tine winter months are fast ccHTiir>g

als are Invited to try thieir harri at the Amiga games 
sc©r>e, Leisuresoft UK intend to mal<e a btg impact 
on the gaming front arKl o football game could be 
just what it takes. 

Football games are undoubtedly tfte Amiga's 
strong point, and hove brought in more cash ttTon 
any ottier genre. All the all-time greats hove 
appeared on the Amiga ar>d ircldentally. most of 
them never mode successful convefSJons onto the 
PC or ar^y console. Sensible Soccer, Kick Off< Player

are Just a selection who owe their huge success to 
ttie Amiga. 

Club and Country is one of the few foottjoli man- 
agement games that offers jobs on cJub ond intef- 
rxjtlorvol level, Sensilste Software had aspirations to 
the idea but it was never given thie time of day. 
After 10 seasons of non-stop promotions, relega- 
tions and cup enits, ttie last thing you want to do is 
retire. Club ar^d Country gives you the option to 
n>ancige tt>e national team when your success 
becomes too much for tt>e rest of the pack. 

At the beginning of Club and Country, VOLI or© 
given a list of clubs to take on in division three. They 
all offer competitive salaries crid a required league

the foot of tt>e screen as a picture, Vou begin with o

oppearance. As you progress through ti'ie divisions 
kicking up trophies and promotions, more money 
will come in, thus ertobllng you to offford Q iDetter 
life. So the actual objective of the game isn't to be 
ihe best team In the world In a completely flctlonol 
way, but to earn enough money to live on and with 
luck- progressing and enjoying the higher life of foot- 
ball management. 

The actual match sequences are Immensely 
locking In quality - there is no animated- graphical 
action, )usl a short and brief description on injuries 
and bookirigs, so you can't acquire a true estima- 
tion of your team's ability. You can make substitu- 
tions and swap players arour*d during the match, 
out you can't alter the woy your team plays. 

Although ttnese comments seem harsh in some 
respects, they are purely cosmetic and could have 
been tidied up. The depth and realism is present but 
simply overshadowed by the cartoon pictures. 
Another problem \& ttie research. At first glonce it 
looks like all the players' data is. present and correct 
because Dennis Bergkomp is In Arsenal's line-up. 
However it seems the rest of the squads haven't 
been touched. There's no sign of on editor either so 
it \odks like you're stuck witti them - unfortunately.

Final word 



Compared to the likes of Player 
Manager 2 ar>d On The BalL Club and 

Country doesn't even get a look in, 
The football gome industry Is becom- 
ing Increasingly popular once ogain 
and it's certainly not going to be an 
en^sy tasi< for anyone to better the 
monagement games that are 
dominating today's morket. It isn't a 



bad effort, but one v^riiich will liriger 
around the bottom of the leogue, stor- 
ing relegation in the face for few 
seasons. It all bolls down to lack of pre- 
sentation. If you already have Player 
tvlanager 2 and On The Bolt, Club and 
Country wouldn't be a bad purctiase. 
If you're that football modi, you'll prob- 
ably buy it anyway!

that occuroteiy recreate the mocierrvdciy flying 
experlervce. 

Those in this category (of whlcti there are few - 
tt>e only ones thort spring to mind are A320 Airbus 
and Proflight) are the ones that can seem very 
b(and to the uninitiated, but for those who toke the 
trouble to read the hefty monuals and study the 
flight charts, they are reworded with a very realistic 
slmulotk^n of the reol thing. 

Anyway. falling into this latter category Is 
Thalion' s latest offering. Approach Trolner, the next

Europe's 58 most important airports. 

The fifst thing you need to know is that although 
It is a supplement to Airbus A320. you don't need

Star1ir>g: with the training mode you ore given 
electronic aids to help get through the procedures 
step by stepr or>d as you progress you can turn off 
each feature or>e by one. Yog con also choose the 
airport, the weather, arxj whether you tackle o long

ompart return to grace the Amiga 
screens once again, After manv 
months of pure speculation, Turbo Trax 
has finally arrived - in Ferrari-lil(e 

fashion too. 
Korrtport. resporvsible for the abundance of 
Amigo releases during these last few months, ore 
odding to thek already weli-developed collection 
o challenger for tt>e likes of Overdrive and 
Roodi<ili. Ttiese two weren't particularly successfuii 
corripared to ttie likes of the late '60 's Nitro, This 
was one of ttve few top-down racing games ttiot 
packed pure challenge and action. The idea was 
to race against a series of opponents in various 
cars. A whole host of tracks were included making 
this one of the most pbasing and satisfying gomes 
of all time. 

Duirlr>9 the early "^Os, Supercars was Introduced 
on the- Atari format, ioler making its way across to 
the Amiga. This was. viewed top-down. Just like 
Nitro, but wtiere Nitro failed in terms of variety, 
Supercars filled fhe spot almost too perfectly. 
Featuring an option to buy more cars and 
progress onto later tracks, Supercars' success was 
inevitable. What made Supercars incredibly popu- 
lar was the fact it offered a different perspective. 
The idea of layered tracks was welcorT>ed with 
open arms by games players everywhere. 

After the recent releases of Road kill and 
Overdrive, Turbo Trax is the latest top-down racing 
gome. After being in the pre-production phase for 
months, will it finally pass its driving test? 

There are three modes of play - Arcade. Tim© 
Triafe, and Practice, The arcade mode Is basically 
to beat fivei other computer opponents to cross 
the line first, picking up some cosh to spend on 
your car to increase Its handling gnd power. After 
you complete a race,, you are given a number of 
items to buy to increase your car's capabilities. 
You can buy five types of engine, steering wheel, 
fuel and tyres. The better the component ttie 
more expensive It'll be. 

In the arcade mode, the computer opponents 
are especially hard and the car in pole position 
always seems to be tralf way round the course 
before you've even turned the first corner. It'll take 
an enormous amount of practice to enable you to 
come first, or even second. 

To Slow you down, various obstacles are placed 



Comparing cars 



There hove been a significant number of top-, 
down racing games reteased recently, nam- 
ely Road kill Overdrive and Micro Machines, in 
the post we have seen the likes of Super Sprint. 
Nitro ond indy Heat, Oh, alright, so indy Heat 
wasn't specifically top-down but more of a 
mid-slanty top view that worked surprisin^ky 
well. 

These are tt>e only commercial releases 
can think of. Most of the top-down racers 
emerge from Public Domain, and some of the 
decent PD racers include Moose Drive and 
Road To Hell. 

on the traclKS - the oil is undoubtedly the worsi 
Having, said that, it's not as frustroting as you cc 
imagine. On most racing games, sliding on oil w^iJI 
send you careering into thie crash barriers, aimoa 
certainly putting you out of contention for M 
place. However on Turbo Trax, the frustration fac- 
tor is set just about right. If you do happen to bs 
In an unavoidable position resulting In bidding 
over an oil leak, the worst that can happen >s a 
simple 360 degree spin fallowed by a loss in 
speed. This enables the opponents to gain o little, 
but not so much that It ruins the entire race.

Gearbox problems 



Every car I have known h<x hod probtems with 
It in one way or onoltier. If it's not the gearboj^, 
you'll proboblv have left your keys Inside, It's 
funny the way all ttie problems seern to occuf 
Just after the two month warranty has expired, 
Oh weli, ttionktully none of these probleniis 
appear in Turbo Trax. 

Although every car featured in Turbo Trax is 
extremely high powered, you wouldn't really 
expect the type of occeleration you are pre- 
sented with. The gear changes are noticeable, 
unlike many other racers, and the pitch of the 
engine noise is also heard. Most games seem as 
it they ore controlled in first gear all the tinne. 
and a high pitched roaring noise becorr^es 
ejctremeiy annoying. 

However, tfi© acceleration Is lacking 
Immensely. If you do happen to get fiammered 



of car which race on their own respective cir- 
cuit.. For instonce, you won't find a Formuio One 
tuned car racing on a dirt track. There are quite 
o few different styles of trocS<'s, with around 
seven or eight mapped out differently. There ore 
street, snow, dirt, and racing tracks which 
require various types of handling because of the 
conditions. 

Before you take on a track, you can tune 
your car to suit the circuit. Obviously, if the next 
track to race is a slippery ice track the idea is to 
spend money on handling and grip by purchas- 
ing the steering wheel and tyres. There is iitfle 
point in purchasing a high-powered engine 
because you'ii spend most of the time going far 
too fosf and spinning out of control. You have to 
master the car-set-up screen before attempting 
o race or you will undoubtedly corns nowhere. 

The car sprites for top-down rocing gomes 
ore basically of a stondord appearance. They 
are kept very simple because they have to be 
manipulated at every angle to make them 
smooth and fluent. Turbo Trax's sprites are sim- 
ple, yet they work very effectively. There is no 
onimation on the cars themselves because that 
would simply com pll cote the speed and defini- 
tion. 

Th& tracks and backgrounds or© good, mak- 
ing it pleasurable to ploy as weli as bfeing easy 
on the eye. There are different kinds of scenery 
to add enough voriety to keep you playing for a 



off ttie side of the track, the possibility of getting 
yourself going within seconds is very remote - Qi 
moving up to sixtfi: gear seems to toke a life 
time. 

Although there is a voriety of cors, there isn" 
any actual difference between them. For 
instance, you'd expect a formula one car tc 
have a higher speed than an off-road truck, 

Vou are also given a damage bar. This will 
inform you of how much damage your car has 
token and how much it will take, if you happen 
to exceed this amount, you'll be thrusfed back 
at the beginning again. You can damog© your 
car In o number of ways, although trying to 
overtake Is possibly the worst so I suggest yOb 
try to avoid it - olthough not at pedestrian 
crossings. That alwoys seems to inject a little 
excitement. 



while. There is a street track which is moppet 
out with cones - these must be negotiated 
along with the other five cars to compiete tfii 
track. As Turbo Trax runs quite fast, it is difficutttc 
see which bends and comers will be coming up 
Memorising them won't work either becaus 
there are simply far too many of them tc 
attempt. When you begin the arcade mode, o 
random one will b© picked as well.. 

The computer opponents don't reoily give 
you much chance of catching them, never 
mind beoting them. It will take many weeks of 
practice until you are good enough to chgh 
lenge for first pf ace. 

Finally, the sound effects are very realistic 
with engine noises and the screeching of 
brakes. These all add to the excitement and 
oction - although, not that much. 



Final word 



Overall, Turbo Trax :is a fairly good game, if 
doesn't include anythir»g special or mind-blow- 
ing, it's simply another top-down racing gome 
- although tfie main point of the game is the 
fact tf simply plays weli and is quite en|oyabte. 
The variety of tracks and cars gives it a longer 
kisting challenge as you have to adapt to 
eoch one, The graphics do their Jobs ade- 
quately ar>d It oil adds up to a really ployoble 
game 'wtth many months of enjoyment.

Hollywood 



By Tina Hackett 




omputer Poker is normally a genre 
reserved mainly fof tfie PD pages of an 
excuse to show scantity ciad tX5dles os In 
Strip Poker, But now new compony, 
Desert Star Sofiwore, hove tdken the 
seedy underworld poker seen© and ircorporcrted It 
Into a computer gome. It looks like being g feminist's 
worst nightmare witti grotultous breast shots, fat old 
nrven forting, or>d it offers all other stereofypicoil trorts 
of the garribler, Fortunotelyn it's all done tongue-in- 
cheek and ttie end product will probabty i;>e a 
comlsinatlon. of ROb C Nesbft and Leisure Suit Larry. 
Tlhe story sets you as a bit of o lo«er, really, Well, to 
be kind, you've Just been unlucky. Vou lose your Job 
your girlfriend leaves you, arxj your cor gets repos- 
sessed, all in ttie some doy. You ore on ttie streets of 
Hollywood, alone, when you find yourself enticed 
Into a dingy club and Into a poker game. 

You face three ottier rather dubious characters 
and can select ttie level of difficulty from Rookie. 
Average, or Hustler, depending on your skills. The rest 
is a straightforward Five Card Draw Poker game wffti 
all players placing their ttets, and so ch^. Control ts via 
ttie joystick and you p^oy unfil you're broke. 

The PR blurb occomponyir^ ttie ipceview copy 
boasts over 1Mb of speech and FX, and so far 




Two tmble aptiont ar* »if»iiMble - 
thl» it th« nf pre decenr of th« two 




Hustlerl 




Th« cinammttc Introduction t0Ht fh« *toty - yov 
are (fowji an yuuir fuck, vo jfov enter the cfub 

fortingC?), and □ "Raise you five' uttered In an 

Americari accent by your opponents add to ttie 
seedy atmosphere. 

And unlike other games of frvis kind, Hoitywood 
Hustler promises to make each game completely 
different, with all cards being dealt at rondofn. 
Each hand rerrialns known only to the player hold- 
ir>g them, so tfie computer can't actuolly cheof 
The opponents' ttilnking also vartes eacti time 50, 
for Instonce. ttiey may or rrray not bluff, or may M 
moreoggressive. 

A cherootic intro will also be used to create th^■ 
feel of ttie game, and depending on how well yc. 
ploy, you will get one of ttiree endings. 

It certainly looks different and rather entertairv 
ing. Even tfie gorrie box continues ttie tongue-in- 
cheek style looking IIJ<e a cheap ''70 's pom n\m, and 
with flhe green baize trim you could almost be 
there! 



Grim 



Hollywood Hustler has a cinematic style and 
tries to provide a little more to it than Just the 
card game, hence the reason for the charac- 
ters which are in keeping with the ^style, 

IVlontana Slim is the chef from the diner next 
door to the club and as you can guess by his 
name, as well as enjoying 'broads', and gom- 
bling, he's also into his food and booze in o big 
way, The others ore Joe. ani ex-sixties guru who 
is now the manager of the Puaycot porno- 
theatre, and Chuck, o would-be movie star 
and a night clerk at the motel. And lastly, there 
is Jackie, also known as Miss Astrodate, a strtp- 
per from the exotic cabaret bar. All sounds 
lovely, doesn't it?

DS are o company who are quite 
well known among many Amiga 
owners for their previous war/ 
strategy games, Their other titles 
include Action Stations, Blitzkrieg and 
White Death, Bravo Romeo Delta, their brand 
new game, has Just been released and It 
Includes all kinds of new strategic elements tharf 
differ from the first attempts, 

Guildhall Leisure are set to relea^ this before 
winter, olong with their second release. 
Subversion, and both of them will set you back a 
mere £9. 99, However, the question Is, will they 
include enough tactical depth to keep you 
going through the coming winter months? 

The idea behind the game is to take com- 
plete control of the US strategic forces which 
irtciude iCBMs, SLBMs, SSBNs and Bomber Bases, 
There are a series of nuclear worheads aimed 
for the US Air Boses, and your job is one of 
responsibility - to launch o limited ottack to pre- 
vent the warheads reaching itieir designated 
targets. 

Ihe main menu screen ts divided into quar- 
ters,, and each one tokes you to another screen 
of attack asessments or nuclear strike plans -

Reviewed by Andy Mdddock 



covering a different part of the game. Not 
being a nuclear^wor/strategy fan I wasn't 
really looking forward to ploughing through 
menu after menu just looking for a way to fire 
some weapons. However, after loading It up I 
was quite impressed with the depth within Bravo 
Delta Romeo, 

■Riere's no doubt that the game was written 
by someone who has researched each part, 
studying it in great detail, They quite obviously 
know what they're talking about and seem to 
hove achieved the right blend of strategy ond 
tactics. The notorious problem that can occi 
with these strategy gomes is the fact that ti ■_ . 
programmer Includes all sorts of nonsense that | 
cannot be understood. Bravo Romeo Dei' 
includes a manual that explolns every part _ 
the game. After a few minutes, you'll pick up o i 
the strategy jargon and soon be processing 
attack waves. 

I can fully understand if people turn their 
noses up at Bravo Romeo Delta - it's certainlv 
not the most populof genre but It does appeo 
to a minority group which should be catereo 
for. 

Having said that, even the small minority may 
not be able to put up with the untidy and! 
appalling graphics ttiot are very difficult to S€- 
Even the icons located on the left side of 11=. 
screen ere very blurred and have no graphical 
picture attoched. Vou will have to check 1' 
mdnual a few times just to recap on which ice 
does what. 

In terms of war ond strategy, there are 
no other games that immedlotely spring to 
mind, so I think it's quite safe to s<jy that Bravo 
Romeo Delto is the best of Its genre 
despite the odd graphical glitches here 
and there,

Subversion 




ou Qfe commander of the subma- 
rine 'Noutilus' and youF mission 
objectives are to locate all enemy 
wifriin tlie area end destroy them. 
Subversion is the second reieas© by 
Guildhall Leisure introducing the war/strategy 
aporoach, ond Is only slightly more orcadey 
than Bravo Romeo Delta, You are given a huge 

Ioottlefield play area in the middle of the 
Kfeen, and all the options are locoted around 
the edge of the screen, These range from firing 
torpedos to checking your status and looking 
fpr other subs in the vicinity. 
The game is basically self-expianatory ortd a 
huge session with the manual isn't reaify 
required, AH the menus and optiorts are located 
at the top of "ttie screen, mo king It very user- 
friendly. The only annoying foctof tfiot is bun- 
1 with the packoge t the code protection 
wneel, A series of numbers are presented to you 
orK:i you must find the corresponding letters and 
motch them with some more numbers on ttie 
reverse side. It would hove been okay, but it 
(okes o while before you finally work it out - 
especially with a case sensitive code wheel. 

The main display in the centre of the screen 
displays areas of combat and locations of 
enemy ships, land and subs. Not only do you 
have to destroy enemy ships, but avoiding and 
destroying mines Is pretty much a secondary 
mission objective, 
j The graphics are fairly simple, but there's 
I rr.ore than enough depth and tactical gome- 
n fact, Subversion does become repetl- 
i.ve and boring after a while, because you hap- 
pen to stumble upon the same attacks over 




The map shows all the locations of 
than Aii^niy. Mak0 svr^ yOu choose 
m noirt* that atmmr* cimar of trtlnmm 



and over again 

If you wont a good, serious submarine simu- 
latior^ then i suggest you check out Sub War 

2050, It has the same amount of tactics and 
gomepioy as Subversion but the graphics stand 
out so much further. It's like an underwoter flight 
sim and gives you an exciting role to play 

As it stands. Subversion i:s an innovative Idea 
with plenty of challenge to keep you going 
quite a while. If you con put up with the 
oppalling graphics and the small minor gripe 
about the code wheel, then I can rec- 
ommend Subversion only to submarine 
odmirers.

4 Virtual 
Karting is fully 
texture 
mapped and 
aims for this 
latest Virtual' 
style 9 



aTM are a new company to the Amiga 
market and unfortunately their first 
game. Touring Car Chaiier\ge, left a 
Wack mark against their name, receiv- 
ing pitiful review scores. iHowever, tiieir 
forthcoming release, Virtuai Karting, looks likeiy to 
redeem their reputation and unlike most of 
today's rather predictable roce-'em-ups, this title 
fakes the form of a Go-Kart racing game. 

Vlrtuai Karting Is fully texture mapped and aims 
for this latest Virtual' style. Two views ore availabfe 
- a 2D overhead angle where you can zoom in or 
out. or o 'i::»ehind the kart' 3D angle. Both work 
pretty well so far and the 3D angte gives a good 
impression of speed, whereas the 2D ov©rf>ead 
gives more of a toctlcai style of game. 

There are three tracks available, one Is the sim- 
ple figure of eight style, another a taxing vi/lndy 
frock, ond the last one is for the experts only 
because as well as hairpin bends and sharp cor- 
ners, you are In danger of falling 
into the water surfounding most of 
the track. Overall, three tracks do 
sound quite limiting, but OTM are 
promising update disks at a later 
date. Another limitation could be 
that if doesn't have a two-pioyer heod-fo-heod 
mode but even so, it still seems like a fun gome 
that looks original. 

The gamepioy feels very responsive at this 
stage and is easy to control. Game speed 
depends on your machine, and with a standard 
A1200 you can expect 25 frames per second. 
However, with an accelerator you can double this 
to 50 frames per second. 

Sound effects ore also fairly realistic and are 
close to the real thing, ond a quite acceptable 
infro tune gives quite a polished feel, Whot also 
looks nice Is a 'Fly-by" helicopter preview of the 
tracks. 

Control of the game is either by digital joystick, 
mouse, or analog joystick, The player can also 
choose whether to race in a IGOcc kart or 125cc, 
and manual or automatic gears are olso 
user-definable. 

Unfortunately, the screer^hots don't do the 
preview much justice. Due to the grophics mode 
they don't grob all that well, but they'll give you 
some sort of an idea arywoy. Jhe game is AGA 
only and is due for release this month,

Ince the success of Geoff Crommond'a 
Formula One Grorxj Prix, Amiga owners 
have been crying out for a sequel. 
Unfortunately, it was announced it will 
only be developed exclusively for ttie 
PC. Now, a company willing to take on the chal- 
lenge of creating o similar version are Kelllon 
Software - a new company whose debut game is 
looking mightily impressive. 

Leading Lap has been in development since 
December of last ^ear. Almost 12 months have 
possed and hopefully they will have studied the 
competition ond plan to try and attract the 
Cfiristmas crowds as well as having the premium 
oread© racing garrie, stealing the crown from 
MicroProse. 

You can see from the scr©er»shots that Leadfrvg 
Lap looks like a jigsaw - put together by pieces ot 
other racing games. Formulo One Grand Prix, 
Hard Drivin' and Sega's arcade, VIrtua Racing, oil 
seem to make some kind Of appearance, 
graphicallv. 

However, ttie plot behind Leading Lop strays 
from these three, The idea i£ to race around many 
different European countries and gattier enough 
points to top a league containing five other dri- 
ven. The drivers will have their own particular per- 
sonoliti&s and characteristics so obviously, there 
will be many budding computer- 1 Ike Michael 
Schumachers Out there. 

There wHi be three areas to race around, 
namely the racing, country and city tracks, as well 
OS three different cars - formula one, rally and 
endurance - and each one is graphically 'different 
from the previous. 

Ttie polygon graphics or© looking particularly 
spectacular, ond there is an option to change the 
detoll from trees and bridges to large buildings. 



I 



Final word 



Another surprising aspect is the speed. It is 
probably on© of the fastest games I have wit- 
nessed in this genre. Usuaiiy. to make o racing 
game fast the graphics are often sacrificed. 
L&adir>g Lap contains high detailed back- 
ground screens, while still monagir>g to keep 
the speed at a realistic rate. 

There are stdl a few tweaks that need to be 
mods here and there, but so far, Kelllon 
Software could present on offer thot 
MicroProse Formula One Grand Prlii fanatics 
just can't refuse. 



You will also be obie to set the angle at whieri "le j 
extern qI view is observed. This enables you to] 
change the view by the press of a button to sea I 
who is around you, whereas in Formula One I 
Grand Prix, to see who is behind and in front 
hove to toggle the views awkwardly, and evet'iu- 1 
oily you'd lose control of your own car. This option j 
is present too. bijt It works far better 

In Formulo Or>e Grand Prl,x, there ore three dm- 
ferent angles from which you can view the 
action. With Leading Lap there are more. You can 
view from inside the cockpit to anything up to c 
zoomed out view - much like Sego's arcacte 
Virtua l^acing. This particular arcade boosted 
these angles and, surprisingly, Leading Lap is 
shaping up to look like a close Amiga version.

So, onto other business, i think that thrs month I should 
relJ you how to get trd of stuff, rather than putting new 
■-.tuff onto your machine. So we will start with 
unwanted aislgns. You know how yoo have a drswe* 
<ij signed and you want to get rid of it, but ArnigaDOS 
brings up an alert saying 'Cannot delete biahdiWah, 
oijject is in use,' Weii, If you hit the Shell ynu can 
usuafly get nd of assigni by typing the assign name 
fofiowed by dismount or remove, i.e.: 

aiiijn blilidil>tgl): riiovi 

Tnis wKI usually let you defete tile offending directory. 
Use the Dismoum option if it's a device yew are tiying 
tn get rid of rather than an assign. Alternatlvefy. if you 
hdve the assign made in your user-startup scrrpt, you 
can always remove it from there and tfren reboot. 
A5i\gns aren't uiuaJly too probPenwjic to get nd of, but 
there are other (teflis that might chew up memory tfwt 
ypu would do well to sort ijut. 

The most important of these is "undoubtedly your 
EfWARC' directory. Numerous programs use EW: to 
store settings and preferences, programs that you 
might no longer use The only way to rtiaJte sure you 



Wasting space 



aren't wasting valuabte system resources Is to trawl 
through EfsTVARC pehodicaify to check, for offending 
items. 

if you are using a fife manager like DOpus or 
Oiskmastef you an easily get to envsrc: by bringing yp 
an assigns list. If you don't have a suitable file 
management program, you can do the sanw stuff by 
opening a shell window and cd'ing to EfsfVARC:. If shell 
frightens you, then the las: method of getting there is 
to go into your prefs drawers on your boot.drsk fujually 
called DHO.; HDO, or WorJibench.J and h^^ a look for 
a drawer called env^rchive. This pfobabfy wont have' 
an icon so you'if need to show aif files frorn the 
Window menu on \»forkhench first. 

Anyway, by whatever meEhod you reach it ypu 
should eventually find yourseff within the ENVARC: 
drawer. The only files that are really important in 
EiWARC: are contained wrthin tf»e sys drawer, but that 
doesn't mean you can go deletrng all the other files 
willy niiiy. Tfie files in the Sys drawer are all your 



Workbench preference settings, like the font your 
Workbench screen uses, its resolution, number of 
colours, etc. 

This is very usefiri to know if you make a mistake and 
save something in Prefs that you can't use - for 
instance a DBLPAL screenmnde on a 10B4 rrwnitof If 
you have done that then the best you can hope for is a 
Wack screen, but you might damage your monitor. The 
thing to do is to i?oot without a startup-sequence and 
cd to !ys:prefs/env-archive/sys and delete the file 
screenmode.prefs, Then you can h9ppily reboot once 
more, safe in the knowfedge that your Workbench wjfl 
boot in four colours on a PAL Hi-res screen whjch will 
be happily displayed on your 1 081 . 

Sometimes the preferences stores in EfWAfiC: are 
held within their own drawers inspde iUVflRC - (his: 
makes it really easy to see what you are doing. If thrs 
isn't the case, yon can atways move the questionable 
files elsewhere and reboot to see if the ffles are 
required by any of the programs currently rynning on 
your machine. 

Obviously, yo*j will need to run the programs you 
fiave on your drive to be aisle to check whether the 
fifes you have moved are needed.

y gocd fnend Error at 
EMCotfipul&qfSfitwc 
approached me a while ago 
and wk«l if I could produce 
some cover srtwofk for tts upCDming CD- 
ROM relMse. i agreed ^nd he sent me seme 
[ jlwtcties of whdt he thought tA^oufd be nfce. I 
i p(ayed arouncf with the concepts he ggive 
I n» and' decidW (Jhat Lightwave would 
; pfotiatjiy prowe frie trest solutjon for tt>e 
I building blKks of the finaf image. 

The initial tatt 'Phase I was the first thing 
; ID deal with. UghtWave actusJiy pfovides 
good lacilitJes tor conwensng PdstScnpt type I 
l^pef^ces nntD 3D at^KS, albat nc4 qufte as 
[ iUce as Imagme's for ai efiange, so raths' 
I tnan raving to build the tie;<t friofn K.ratch I 
smpi^ loadt}d the appropriate font (iupitei 
from the S^fsri Font codlectiDn OT,M EWC 
' sefcj and extruded il 

I deoded to bevel the tejct as rt loofced a 
bit bland and flat. At this point I checked 
with EiTol to see v*3t he wanted in lerms or 
lExtunng far the tesd. and surprisingly, he 
went for my first choice which \ had metety 
selected for a test render. M this was was a 
slightly glossy red for tfw front, the ssmple 
tenture Bumpy Chrome with the hump map 
jemoved for the ba«f, and the sampte 
texture Gradierrt for the sides of the letters. 

I did sewral test renders of the text at 
tlffferent angles, but decided rt still looked 
too Rat, so I changed the focar (ength of the 
lens to distort the etvl resuft a tm tnote, Errol 
(fcJnt like the jauntty angle I fipit: put the text 
at. so we sealed on the Slat front, but tipped 



Things to 
note 



Lookmg back at thp image f prodi/ced, 
there aire certainly some thrngi i would 
try if I had had the time [and might 
attempt for Phase Z, 3. etc. tf Etrol 'ets 
me(. Firstly, I probad^ woufdn't make 
:^<? cover a space thene again, 
r^^erybody uses the same sort of 
imagery, arwJ lens, flares are getting so 
tfich^d these days. The second thing is 
that I might have relied more on 
Photoshpp to Speed up the renderrng 
pracesi. Woiron DluK, lens ffares and 
lighting effects are all easy to achieve in 
i^'otoihop and take a lot tew Hme ttiim 
tne effects rendiered by LightWave. 

Having sard that, I wasm't overly 
•-.impered By a deadline for this 
commission, so I didn't need to save 
time, Uisriy, it pays to try and extend 
your software collection. Had I only 
been able to use Lightwave and ADPro 
fof this cover Ifrvige, it would fiave been 
a lot more Wand thiin it cuit enily ts. 



Ben UD5t talKs us through a recent [Qmmi55iDn 





Cplfnn rwqufrad 

badt sq^te tha* graces the cover now. 

For Ihe background, whkrh was rendered 
separateily, I set up a scene ustrig the random 
ssrt obfect which comes with LigfrtWave, a 
pair of lights jofse to provide a fiU, the second 
for the tens flare] and sotne objects These 
objects were based upon tt« concent of the 
CO-ROM and cor^sisted of several pictures 
rind objects msde from fonts. 

HHIID5 HRD EFFECTS 

To retain the aspect tatio of (he piirtures, I 

made ihetirotjject the same siie in 
centirrwtrK as ttie piaures were In pucefi. I 
distorted the tens for the cameta once more, 
although not to the same eirtent ( had used 
fof me tBct and shifted the catnent back a 
bit To get the stmdhed om star effect I 
turned on partcfe blur arid gave it a high 
percefTiage, then I jumped to frame five and 
moved the camera ttack towards the centre 
of tne scene, fit Uw same time f brought the 
teat and picture objects out frorrt jiie centre 
to see tf motinn tAjr would look nice. 
Unfcirtunatfly, motion bfcjr looited anything 
but nice, but the particle tjiur seemed to 
work reaify nicety. 

I composited the Ph.»ie I text onto a Lo- 
fts preview of the batkg.' ound so that Errol 
couW; get some idea of wtiat I was trying to 
do, He Itfced tne base idea but wjggested 
some NT^rovements, including a couple of 
flyrg CDs to go ontD the cover to ram home 
the point of tfw artwofk. 5o i rerwtdered. 
Eventuatly, througfi trial and errou. we came 
to agree how the end result woukj look: 

Mow that f hHd tompteted the building 
biodis fcK the image. I .'e^ierod them once 
more, this time at a higher resolution. 
Because a CD Osjw^r jsn't ,il\ th^it large. I onfy 
rendered the images at high' f Ejscjlution. 



rather than 'piirtt,' This obwusly to<* a let 
less time to render he^iefulJy without 
jhcwmg irt the final pfir>t. I ended up with 
m image that was about a thooKind ptmels 
square for the tjackground 

I tiad done the earty compositing in 
ADPy-o. which was fir^ for (he purpose at 
that leuel, but fw the final artwortt f decided 
to fire up Sfapeshifter and use Photoshop 
on the Mac. Photoshop is what IntageFA 
should, and perhaps wiJI. be. Tlie most 



important feature for ine was Ftiotcshap's 
facility for multiple, independent layefi In 
the same picture. This meant I could have 
separate, discrete etements, like the Phase I 
logo, the nomial re« that appears on the 
cower, the background, arid the glow as 
individually edUtatile ptttures. 

Thrs allowed me ts play around with 
scaling the Phase f logo and its placement 
on the tackground, without needing to 
keep retosid«ng the ptcture, I also resorted to 
using Quark XRress for the layout of the CD 
on the page because PageStream stIB 
cannot print separations |a reaiy serious 
fauft for a professional DTP package, I kid 
you nat|. 

So (here you frave il. Fron wiglnal sketch 
to completed image in less Chan a pag>e. I 
only wish it was as paintes a prgtess to 
create the iiTHge as it was to wfrte about »L 
That havmg been Stiid, I did have a lot of 
fin dotng the worfc and if you wtsh to see 
the end result I can only suggest yav boost 
EMCs coffer? and buy the (X! for ycursetf.

that may b€ required. A spread is a range 
of colours Wended between a start

extensive spreads, aflowing for smoother 
transitions Between cplpurs. Howww. 
more cotors invarrabfy means more 
worlt. afihough the Trnished artwork wilJ 
look better than a 16 or 3 Z colour image. 

rOlOUH SELECKOn 

For those of you with non-AGA 
rrwchines, the task of cofpur sdeaion is a 
more difficuit one ^n^ you may find your 
scene doesn't lend itseff too wed to T 6 or 
il colours. Jf you sho require spreads, 
you may even have' lo consider KWl 
(Hold And ModilyJ mode which ij 
E»:Lre»Ttdy si^ow in Deluxe Paint. 
l?i:memt>er that it is ttie foreground 
Clements of your design that are of most 
impoJtctnce - a background can easily be 
covered hyjuiLa single colouf. two at 
the moiC 

One way to false^ create colour 
transitions j spreads.! Is to use dithering. 
Dithering worts tjy creating a chess 
bOtird pattern made up of two colOt^rs 
Due to [he resolution, the effect fools the 
eye into thmkirtg its seeing^ new colour. 
If you dithered red and white it would 
look like pink, green and red appears as 
(srowi'-i II you don't os',^n an AGA 
machirre it may be a worthwhile exercise 
la actually create an image with different 



colour dfthering to see which 
combinations work best, When you think 
youue got your palette right, save it out. 



i^ttipugh it's temptrng to start your 
design with the foreground, the tjest 
place to start is the background. The 
tjackground rs invanfitjly the simplest 
element in design ami can act as An 
incentive to finish t^e picture off [one of 
tl>e toughest Efiscipiines in computer- 
despgn is patience] . it also acts as an 
excelfent reference for your foreground 
elements and you nv^ even frnd better 
positjoning thart you originally 
aniicipaced.

The real world 



Probably the most frightening type of background is a natural one, The ieA. land, rock, 
sky, desert and snow are arl natural backgrourKis that make artisu cnnge The problem 
with natural backgrounds rs that cntics won't fillow for misada, If it's the inside of a 
spaceship or building you made up it doesn't matter what people say, because it's your 
creation. 

There are two ways to deiign natural twckgrounds and both worH equally well. Vou 
can go for the realistic design m which you attempt to accurately recreate the 
background as much <is possible, or opt for the more cartoon look, usmg less coJours 
md taking less time. 

If done correctly, both look rmpressiw, but you must remember that they also 
drctate itie foreground style to some degree, If you create a compter backgrouncJ wrth 
many colours then youil probably have to do the ssrrw with the foreground efements.. 
Therefore, for those of yatr with nor>^WjA machines it may prow a sound decision 
opting fof the cartoon-style background. 

In the ne« issue I will be expiaining in detail how to go about designing natural 
bacKgrounds - both realistic and cartoon. I ll also be taking a toofc a\ (Jradiencs an6 
how they can speed up the background process.

^^^1 his, month Tm Adding [he nntjihing 
H ^1 touches to Vtv ike\etan lotmM i£i\pi 
^^^1 we've been working en In f«ent asoes 
^^^1 dnd tacMIng the IsS rETTvitning pnoticm 
area, namely the need in efeflne idemicrii pseudp- 
constant' terms m any procedure thai uses aiem. 

Definrng m AHenK furtctJon as a procedure a, 
for the most part, a good ttiirtg to do tiecause 
variables and data used within rtvx fmcticm then 
becofrw (ocal to the Jtincbon [io unncit tie 
modrlied by ^r^lng than happens In other areas 
■of the code). In short, the function ^^ its own 
'ejiecution environmenf and, as soiptj get targer, 
this procedural Isolation tjecomes iFXfBSslngV 
Impoft^nt. 

The dlffpculiy. you m^y retnembCT, is that there 
are amei when you'd actuiiify like to hswe a few 
items o( data shared betwveerr fouiines tJiat have 
tseen rrerked as ptocedufes, and Ihis is 
partrculartjf so wwth variabtes that haw been set 
up to provide itafic, i.e. pseudo^anstant, data. 
LHling f , for ewampfe. shows two nf the routines 
from last month's code which txjth require their 
own CSI jconiroJ sequence IntrtJducer) vanatte 
iJeRnliiDh. 

fi& far as ease of maniertinceetc., is 
concemed, (t would, of course, be far better rf 
ttiat CSi definition erastiKl In just one pface in the 
programf Ors solution to thtj ditemma WBuW tse 
tD define such items at the stanrcif the pnsgrsm 
and then p^ss the required vanaWes as. ftinctiqn 
par^rneters, TTiis approiach a fine If you've only 
got one or two terms that may need to tie shared 
but Ft would get very cumtsersofne If mary llerrB 
vtwe irvolwcr. 

As you fxob^ify know, fiRexn. provides an 
'Expose' iteywofid which provides anoltm 
patliway for making p^rticijlftr vwistiles 'VisiDle' to 
a procedure. My appro^ich for making static 
variable definttiors available to a procedue a 
based on thts keywad, but its not just a matter o* 
eaplidtfy ejfposing each of the variable names m 
tuf n - it jnvolves ihe use cf AReiu's compound 
variables, 

By deffning a suitable stem and using the as 
tlie basrs for i«ll sunic definitions, aN that needs to 
Ik done to make the whgJe set rrf pseudo- 
constant variabfei 'wsibiie' to a pfocedure is to 
iTwe The stem rtseif visible using a single 'Expose' 



Coming soon 

Witfi the rr«nt-«f«d fofni dii'Pl^y code 
now ccMnplete, it ii possilile ia enviiage 
a number of uses fer the routines we've 
developed, A qu^stionnciife prograni or 
iJmple fJat-fiJc datab<<se utifity are two 
appfjcjitjoni thjit come to mtnd jind. In 
,» few monthi time, I'll Iw returning to 
the icript we've buUt over the fjiit few 
Issuer t« explajfi how thJngt fike 
riindom acceii file hancfffng racititlei 
can be added. 

For rhe litimediflte hiture. however, J 
luipect It is probably best If we Allow 
some time for th* quite complex Meat 
of reient rnit^rmenli to lettle for a 
while. NeKt month, therefore, I've got 
somethin'g Totally different for you - a 
way of using a fully-fledged ASi. fJle 
requester in your Af?exjc scripts with 
just » single line of code. Trust me - it's 
an iisue that yisu mtiit not miis* 



Haw ta BHpasE 
unur5Ein 




decbratKin. I ten<j to use the stem narrie 'g-' ig fcr 
'i^obaj'l Jbr these TyP^ of fippiicfitiDns, <ind listing 
1 shovrt the set of constant terms you'lr find in 
this month's CoverOisk example You'll notice, 
vvhen you compare ttiis month's tode to th?it 
given in the tjctptser tjaue, thjt this iEchrnqye 
slightly reAjces the see o( the procedur«. TWs. 
hcwever, s not vvhere the real benefit te The 
real advantage u that we end up with all pseodo- 
ctnstant definitions defined m just one fitace 
Witt* the sflurce but eliminate the need to pass 
or ejipose kits of iotlwidual variabtes. 

Stem ejipcsure is then an e>:trmicJy usefti 
method for makrng .wjitatity defined d?itei sets 
available to a procedure. Another charige rnsde 
In thii rftofirth's ej(arr>pile- code lyou'll find the full 
script on the CoverDis*) is that the Dsplayf orrrifj.

We have seer altuost ever)' Amiga CD litlc in e\isicncE and widty, the general irerd flppei^rs to bi "shovel as iliueh. daiatjn as poKsible and to hell 

with the qiuility" Tlie majimtj- of [Jiese CDs are tilw deveSoped as multi plHitlbmi CDs iind wtiilc [hij* may advantagenjs for iht company selling 

them, (he end user is faced with s. CD cofliaining a high proportion of lilcs ihut he prohahly can't even U'*. S<i whfu isi leti?,..[i CD containing 

kjjd* or l>ad]y orgiinistd tiituL-[i)rieN filbd with low quality (in Mime cases even pathetic) graphie>i. Being a little disnapointed, the user then looks 

in the font directories, jjnd findii.-.a msissive lask on his hiirids,,.he has hundreds of fonts {&at are probably duplicated iiiiiny times) and no way of 

knou-'ing what he's gut' The ptHirtnd user is Ehcn literally forcci] into loading every individual fcnK into ati upplicalion, just to s£e what forts he's 

actually g(til If that wasn't bad enough, he then, quite pijssibly. discovers thai most of the fonts have missing and/or cofnipt filesl 

Some of these so tailed CD developer?! even get away wjtji "shnveling" data froni their old CDs to new ones and releasing the new CD fis 

"Prtjfessinnar We could go on and on and on, but why Ixire you with something you aJrcady know'^ We genuinely feel that tfte current situation 

stinks and we at EMC are aiming to set \he standard on which all data CEJs on the Amiga wiM be judged, A bilj! claim you say? Wet], here's a 

brief insight to what will he included on the bMC CDs and how the data will be organised... 

Pit^tly, these CDs arc aimed directly at Amiga users, and are rmi desisi>ed for multi pEiitfonii computer us*, This means that ycm won't gel CD'^ 

laaded with PC files that you ciinnot use* To aid in the rapid looalion of font, clipart & image data, each of the .^ CDs wj|| con Iain... IFF (t>m 
preview screens for EVERY font (regardless of it's format) you simply click on the preview icon to SEE the font! Tlw? clipart and imajie 

directories have been Fl'LLY wrted and ALL directories include full ll-l' preview thumbnail index .screens (and aJsn descriptive filenanies) 
fHirchasers of llie CfJs will also have the option to buy a typofnce hoiTk. published especiallv fur the l.iMC CDs, containing font priniouiii! 

The RRP price for each CD is £24.99 -i- £i,oo UK pp

III ^^ ^ '''^^ ^^^ *^^ iwrnal ttitonal 
^^^ farmst of [his column and have a lood 
■r 5 coKection of stnxtuneti dip art fof Amigas. 
■ ytju remem&er, twck in issue S8 we tad s 
.)ok aL tlie differences between structured 
j'henivise l:nawn as vectorl and bitmapped 
J p art. We also had s took at the various 
f(jrTiia& supported by fimtqa software, and Che 
-■WsLiion I am loolcing at today is all in EPS 
-..irinai. This means you should be iitrie [o use It 
in Fmal Wnter. ProPage, Page^tream, and 
many othef pacltages, If your program is Irke 
^DPage, all you will see on screen is a boK. but 
• ina) Writer and PageStream iMth hsve [he 
ability to let you see [he graphic as it really is. 

Even if the software you use doesn't support 
EPS fbcmat clip art, all is not lasl as ^^rtwgrks - 
the company that produces the clip art - kind^ 
supplies an IFF ILBW version of the clips for use 
in programs like DPaint and the like, T>ie jet 
Artworki havie supplied me iiVJth is the second 
volume in a three set series - Badges, Banners, 
EkjM>les and Burse - but they have also sent 
me the manuals for the othcir [wo volurmes, 
"rames, Cofn^fs, itrips md Motifs, and Eigni 
'nd SymtMls, 

HIGH aUHLIIV 

The quality of all the dipart in each volume 
IS outstanding, with some very useful imag«5 - 
ffsdit card symbols in the iigns ar»d Symbols 
wjlunw twing particufiirly handy for iar/ing (Sut 
y«tjf own adwefts,. etc. Each volume ij 
accompanied, as I have already sand, by an 
eight-page manual which shcnvs a greyicale 
pnntout of every clip inciuded in each 
coltecEiofi, The clips are organsed into 
directories and then numbened, so you will 
need to make iure you keep the mahual in a 
safe place if you are to have any idea which 
clip you are us^ng. 

Each voJume also comes wsth useftjl advice 
fcir Final Writer usen, explaining how to display 
3 proper Image rather than a cross bo?:, and 
reminding the user that EPS images can take a 
fong time to load and print for unacceferated 
^iga owners. Hmm, perhaps J shciuld have 
said 'owners of unaccelerated Amigas 
Instead., no, I'll leave it the way It is, 

The bitmapped versions of the dip jwt are 
somewhat disappointing as th^ are onjy 
sjsable a[ streen resoJutJon. I was I'eaJly rather 

(hopng fisf big brtmapi that doufd be seated 
ttown to print at printer resolution, but I gue« 
Artworks is only really offering the bitmaps as a 
I sop to Amiga Owners not willing to part with 
I itie necessary dosh to get software that li EPS- 
compatible, Ttie voJumei ai'e also avaUable in 
ProDraw fonnat far those

also useful systemwide. Is Cordon Fecyk's AIM 
Yes, it's a system patch to allow any program to 
use PostScript type 1 fonts, but no, ATM 
doifrf n't stand few Adobe Typo Manager, Adobe 
being too shortsighted to aBow Gordon to use 
their nam*. So ATM stood for Amiga Typeface 
Manager. But Adobe didnt like that, so now 
Gordon has cfianged the name to ATt - Amiga 
Typeface Engme. 

The p^tcti uses the famous Post.Jltjrary and iis 
quite simple and transparent to all software that 
also wtwks Witt! CG fonts. And although ATE is 
stilF at a beta stage as i hvrite tfils. it is attuaHy 
faster tfvm the way CG forts get calculated and 
displayed- if you want to contact Gordon with a 
vjew to having a look at his software, or lo 
express your support in his fight with AdoEie. 
then drop him a line:

.Lastly, there should be a datatype on our 
CoverDisJt this month ttiat wiN prove useful to 
daktop publishers. Datatypes ars, of course, 
only usable if you have Wortbencn 3.0 or

' .buFjlj, oh 
yrifi it's all Avr* 



above, but since Woitherid^ 3, 1 offer? some 
great advances over Worlcbench 2, eipeciaJly for 
graphics card owners, I expect most of you 
reading thie coJumn win be able to use the 
datatype. The datatype in question allows you 
to vtfw complete character sets for a font, a 
type preview if you will, and since you can save 
■ a picUJre out as FF from fii1ultlv»ew, this tool 
should tie a nice way of treatirsg a library of 
type previews. 

It is also very handy to check for the 
exfstence. or non-existence, of cerlapn diacritic 
marks liiie copyright symbols, cpuotalion mar*i 
and accented letters wNch are often not put 
into shareware fonts. Obviously, this datatype is 
really onfy for use with standard CG and 
bitmapped fonis^ snd I tiaven't fnad the chance 
to try it with ATE yet but if it can deal with 
postscript fonts in well, it wouid be very hanc^. 
Of course, if .you are running Pa^geStream 3, you 
have still got the type preview rnacf o to use for 
a high quality print gut of all the postKnpE fonts 
in youf system.

m <»Jway5 gietting Jetters asking me 
ho* to 00 Oil! or that in Amos,, like 
'How can I write a game of 
Defefldef?' or 'can you show me how to 
emulate Uie bourKing palls in Ping Pong?', or 
Haw do yCKj do ihat Bitk witfs rhe characters 
deH'Mzing in Robotrcwi?' I relf you, ifi a nevef 
ending struggle tor sanity in this house What is 
wKjfse is thsit h^lf the time, people don't want 
to know how to code, they warn me to write 
the program for them and put ii on tne dlik 
they sentf mc, Fofg« ii busterl it's my job to 
te^ich people how to code, not do the work for 
them. TsIlI 5ome people. 

But just when I was resolved never to dto the 
diny wort for anyone'again, I got a letter Trom 
an a Amiga Computing reader - R Beltaws of 
Edinburgh - who asketf: "I'ye trted m h^rd 3S J 
can to make a ball twunce around the screen 
like it do« in Pong or those Ariianoid dories. 
How do you do it so it fooks good"'" Ok^. aN 
ngfit, I give up. iHere a my way. 

Pong. Of Pmg F^ng, was one of the ftrst 
games ever devised as a computef at wdeo 
game, ar»d it was certairily the fir^l video ganw i 
owned, I don't know ^txnA yoo - tnjt therr I'm 
sad ar>d old. The thing which always fascinated 
me at30tit the game was the way the tMfl 
bounced around the screen, it seefnecf to 
simulate a re^il tHil tjouncing around, wNch of 
course is incDi reel ttecause real bi^ils tiounce in 
three dimensrons not two. But Ji a 2D game of 
ping pong it wasn't at all Dad 

It was guite a few years later that a trfend of 
mme, I tJiink it was probably Aaron Fothergill, 
showed me how lo compute tMuncing things 
with vectors, The example is as follows;

makes fo*" sorne pretty f«icy 3D garrs ideas 

A separate routine, wtwch ii son; o* related' to 
that, is the Flip Flop, whwea value is ffipped

This is a smpte ej^ampfe of bouncing a ball on

Olcay, Pong me! 

Let's lee your Pong g^intei then. Write a game based on the prinefplei weve

osT people wduU agree thiac quality- 
wise, lisiening to intefTwi sountHjssecf 
music through most Amiga manitori 
leeives a I*rt1? to be desired. The 
addition of multrmedia-sEyie speakeri hefps quite 
rT bft but ta be honest, some of the offerings 
curfently av*lat)le have Quite limited tone 
control circurtry. This, coupled with the fairly 
mediocre speakers thttt ane normaJly providecE, 
uswlly means thst even once you've actded s 
separate ipeaker system there is stilf room for 
improvement. 

In most cases, all Ehaf s needed lo improve 
things are simpJy some better signal EO 
lequalfsaticirtf fadlitiei, Boosting the bass and 
irefcle end of a skinaJ, fo* instarne, can provide 
iome eJitra 'punth' that bcrngi musec to life. Jf 
you can also cooeteii the iignail level being fed 
into the ipeafcef system, (t'i often possible to 
' jrther impfove the sotwid qu<»li^. 

This is eractty where a unit called the Little 
lem comes into its own. It's a smalf 
i7,5cmi]W/| !(l4cm(H| j(3cni[D| two channel 
.ludro miner that provides indepe<Tdenc 
gain, fiigh a^nd tow frequency boost and 
•:uX. and Feft/right pan ccntrbls. The cf/o 
npgt and two Dutput connectors are 
ahoro socJiet type (i e. the same as the 
■Arrirga usesj so when using (he ynit far 
sound output control, it's just a matter of 
connecting theAndga's sound temiinals to the 
Uttte Gem via a st«eo phono lead |not supplied| 
una tonnecting the Little Gem outputs to your 
fiidsting multimedia sound system. 

The unit itseff is powered by a 9v PP3 lattery 
and you do need to remember to switch the unit 
off aft« use, otherwise current will continue to 
be drawn. Mains operation is also possible wa 
most everyday regylated power iuppJies, and 
trie Littie Gem will opecate saDsfattonly 



What's it got? 

• 2 channel Ifi, 2 channel out 

• Hi an4 lo EQ to ■»/• 1 2 dH 

• P»n control! lor itereo paiiUoning of 
channels; 

• Battery or mwtinj dpcf iiUon - takei no 
power from the Amiga 

• Suitable for all Amiga moaeft 



R gem of 
a miner 




Omm mtxtr 




anywhere between ?-! B volts DC, and accepts 
any polarity, 

And Chat's basically it - you piace the Little 
Gem into your iignaJ fine and bingo, ypu 
instantly get much improved signal level and 
tone control. The other advantage of course is 
that you also get full control over left/right stereo 
panning whrch li particularly usefuf for removing 
hard left or right instrument panning in a snng. 
If, say. alf the pencussion/dnums or a bass line of 
a song had Ijeen placed on the left stiereo 
channei. you could use ihe pan control to tjring 
ttiqse mstnuments nearer to the centre o* the 
'itereo stage', in all likelihood producing a more 




natural overall sound outpuc. 

:nere sre other uses for the Unle Gem as well. 
Most sound sarrtplers, ton example, have little or 
no signal £Q faciiities, so unless the sound source 
itself provides these, you're stuct with sampling 
whatever signal amves at the sampler. Put the 
Utte Gem between the source and the sampler, 
fwwevef , and you can then process the so^jnd 
befere tt enters the samptef - and this often 
allows you to improve the fjuallty of the resulting 
sample 

TTioygh fairly expensive (reHative to ttie prices 
of many ai the Amiga sound systems around], 
the Little Gem has rnade a good impression. The 
construction inside is of reasonable quality and in 
practice the mwing crrcuitry works well Equally 
important, the btife Gem has very low rioise 
ievds |in fact it's as good as some mixers costing 
ten times the phcef 

In short, if you h^ive any doubts about 
whether you're getting the best possible output 
frDm your existing Amiga sound system or not, 
the thances are you aren't - and the Little Gem 
could provide the perfect soiudoni

30 and Imagine can flaunt the (aws of 
Physici and produc? icenes 
impoisible in the real world, when, it cofnes to 
lighting a scene reslfstscaHy there's a lot to be 
learned from natural, ^ts well as fhea&xal. flbn 
arxJ television lighting. 

In the real wortd, at (east during dsytlirie, 
there is ont pjedofninant light iource - the Sun 
The wa;^ in which it l»g*its our worW is affected 
by varrous factors such as the angle of the sun 
rn the sky, cloud and fog [and, incfeasingty,

mahner in wJnich light enters buildings and 
Othef ertvironrTMjnts 

UnNke artificiar lights, our relattve proximity to 
the Syn and the strength erf its light means there 
IS little percepttWe fafJ-off of the^ light intensity' 
with distance, though of course Itke alJ real light 
so*jrces, the Sun's Fight actually decreases In 
strength the furthcf it travels away from its 
■ sfHJrce. 

The Sun, while really a "point source of light, 
can be regdedetf on Earth as a pafalfet light 
source tWKause of the great distances involved. 
Parallel light sources ennrt tsyi which alt travel m 
th* s^me directtcm, hence the term 'parallel'. 
ar)d because of the great distances involved and 
the smafJ area oF Edith in relation to the Suns 
light outpoL the rays which hit the Earth are 
effectively parallel rays. Suntighi 15 afso scattered

Artificial light 



When It comei 10 tnterior scenes a new lighting pattern is needed, 
since the Sun Is no longef IJKely to be tfte main light source if indeed it 
I? present at all. In this cs'.^ we need to simijlate the effect of the Sun 
with a Key' light fsocafled because it is the mam light soufcef. but it is 
also usual practice to add one or more extra lights to provide fill to 
soften up the shadows caused Ijy the key light mti to enhance detail m 
the otherwise dark areas cwsed by osmg a smgle light source. 

The key irght is the brightest light sowce in Ote setup and is usually a 
point or distant jparaiiel) iight saurce which is set to cast shadows 
Place it to on; side of the camera, about 10 degrees abow? and at a 
reasonable distance from the main centre of attention The absolute 
distance of the key light from the subjea depends on the strength of 
the light and the ID package you are usir»g In imagine, a distance of 
at feast f DOO units for a RiOO, G200, B200 fight is retorwrteoded. 

The fill light is around half the brightness of the key light, set on a 
levef with the main subject on the opposite side of the ciirrjera to the 
key light, b*jt at an equlvafent distance from tl^ suCyecL It is usual for 
this tight to be set to cast NO shadows. Sometimes: a second fill light 
will be piaced behind and to the feft of the mam subject to provide 



more soft fill. Again, vary the coJour of the lights away from the 
standard default settings for more interesting resufts. 

Once the key and fill Jights have been positioned, tJie rest of the 
room/envifcmment can he lit ^fccordingly. Perfwps there are waif or 
other incidental fights, or maybe a small window. These shouldn't 
contribute much to the main lighting setup but they should add 
interest to the background and illuminat'e the rest of the scene to 
produce the dMired effect. Vou can also add some ambient Irght, but 
remember 10 keep it to a minimum to avoid flooding out your main 
lights. 

There will be situations wfwce the itey light might be s large, weli-lit 
Window m a buiJding, for example, m this case, fwsition a fill irght 
where it most effectively softens tfw shadows and yet still enhances the 
detail of the scene. Try different positions for the fin light untfi you fir>d 
one which produces tf>e most pleasing results. 

Obviously, there are too many variations to go into here, so don't be 
afraid to experiment. If you want more ideas, use the resources of your 
local library and read up on film, thaatricar and photographic lighting 
lo get more insight into fighting your 3D worlds.
